40 Project Lead the Way students participated in the Waukesha Business Alliance Schools -2- Skills program on Tuesday, December 3. These tours are learning opportunities, offered to high school students in Waukesha County and Southeastern Wisconsin.
The mission of these tours is to raise awareness about the importance of manufacturing to Waukesha County, and to form relationships between schools and businesses throughout the county.
The top concern of CEO’s throughout Waukesha County is finding and developing the next generation of employees – from shop floor associates to managers and degreed engineers.
The students went to GE Waukesha Gas Engines, Delzer Lithograph, and Weldall Mfg. Inc. Students met with leaders in the company to discuss STEM job opportunities, school options, and various manufacturing processes. The students even got to do some welding!
The day concluded at WCTC, where students were given lunch and a tour of their lab facilities.
