From the Office of U.S. SENATOR SHERROD BROWN
U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) encouraged Wood County students entering grades 6 through 8 to register for the “Wood County STEM Manufacturing Camp,” to be held at the Wood County Educational Service Center. The four-day camp will help students learn about manufacturing, teamwork, and local production facilities. The office of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) has partnered with several local organizations to put on the camp, to encourage young people to explore careers in manufacturing.
The Summer Manufacturing Camp will take place at the Wood County Educational Service Center from July 9-July 13.
Students and parents can learn more about the camp and download the registration flyer HERE.
The camp costs $60 per student. Need-based scholarships are available to students eligible for free or reduced lunch.
“Manufacturing is one of our state’s most important industries, but too often, our companies can’t find workers with the right skills, while our students don’t realize all the opportunities available to them,” said Brown. “We need today’s Ohio students to realize all the potential careers they could have in Ohio manufacturing, and that’s why, for six years now, my office has put on summer manufacturing camps for 4th through 8th graders across Ohio.”
The camp gives local students the opportunity to learn about careers in their community, tour local manufacturing facilities, and learn from experts about financial literacy and skilled trades.
About Summer Manufacturing Camps
Brown’s office started organizing summer manufacturing camps in 2013, and since then, the number of camps throughout the state has grown every year. This year, Brown’s office will help organize 19 camps in 15 counties.
