Students Cannot Dream What They Cannot See
It's difficult to understand the manufacturing industry if you have never been inside a manufacturing plant.
From the outside, it's hard to imagine how robotics, computers, and high speed automation come together to create products at lightning fast speeds, contributing $2.3 trillion dollars annually to the U.S. economy. It's hard to imagine that the parts being made inside a facility will one day power an electric vehicle, keep a heart beating, or take an astronaut to the moon. And, finally, it's hard to imagine contributing to an industry that you have never seen.
Tours Make a Difference!
Our survey data shows the amount of student who were considering a career in manufacturing before the tour more than doubles after taking a GCAMP manufacturing tour!
