A committee of the NOCO Manufacturing Partnership entitled “Manufacturing Rocks!” created two tours for TSD students to visit and get a hands-on experience in a manufacturing setting. Forty students from Thompson Valley High School and forty from Walt Clark Middle School visited local manufacturing businesses Hach and Aleph Objects, Inc. on January 24. The high school students visited Hach and the middle school students traveled to Aleph Objects.
This program runs twice per year to show young people in our district the new and exciting opportunities available in a manufacturing career. This is not the traditional assembly line that many people think of when they hear the word “manufacturing.” Students may consider taking a manufacturing course in high school or pursuing an internship with a local manufacturer.
