- VERNON, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) encouraged Knox County students entering grades 7 through 9 to register for the 2018 Knox County Summer Manufacturing Camp to be held at the Goal Digital Academy. The five-day camp will help students learn about manufacturing, teamwork, and local production facilities. The office of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) helped organize the camp.
- The Summer Manufacturing Camp will take place at the Goal Digital Academy from June 25-June 29.
- Students and parents interested in learning more about the camp and registering can call 740-803-1002 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The camp costs $25 per student. Need-based scholarships are available.
“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. Local partners involved in the camp include the Goal Digital Academy, Ariel Corporation, Sanoh-America, Inc., and Replex Plastics.
