Step one: create a great manufacturing training program with good instructors and a well-equipped machining facility. Step two: create a compelling video that sells the program to high school seniors about to choose a career path. The ITAMCO Manufacturing Education Center at Plymouth High School in Plymouth, Indiana has both steps covered.
The video above describes the program through the voice and viewpoint of a student, which is a nice touch! Tom Felke at Plymouth High School filmed and produced the whole video.
The public/private partnership behind this program is a team effort by Plymouth High School, Ivy Tech Community College and Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies (ITAMCO). Especially commendable is the contribution from ITAMCO, which donated $100,000 worth of equipment in addition to technical assistance to the program.
