WARSAW — Ivy Tech Community College will celebrate national Manufacturing Day at both the Warsaw and Fort Wayne campuses. The event is designed to address misconceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers a chance to showcase what they do. The day also gives these employers a chance to address the skilled labor shortage they face.
At Warsaw, approximately 1,100 Kosciusko County eighth-grade students will participate in “Discover ME: A Future of Possibilities” to learn about the vast opportunities available in manufacturing throughout Kosciusko County. All students will participate in classroom curriculum lessons to learn about manufacturing and careers beforehand to prepare for the event.
On Oct. 2-4, students will tour The Warsaw Area Career Center, Ivy Tech’s Orthopedic and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, and a Kosciusko County manufacturing facility. The week will wrap up with a discussion and manufacturing survey on Friday, Oct. 5.
