Bridges to Industry: Industry Needs | Education Resources
Edmonds Community College - Woodway Hall 202
Tuesday, December 6, 2016 8:00 AM – 11:45 AM
Industry is well-known for supporting students and teachers in schools. They contribute in many ways such as time, money, internships for students, scholarships, equipment, expertise, and by encouraging employee volunteerism. The December Career Connections Workshop will focus on what local manufacturing businesses need and how best we can utilize our education resources to engage with them.
Sponsored by the Manufacturing Technology Advisory Group (MTAG), The National Resource Center for Materials Science Technology Education (MatEdU), and Edmonds Community College, Career Connections is a workshop for Career Advisors and Specialists. This series event has brought together over 60 K-12 career professionals from around Puget Sound twice a year to learn and discuss opportunities for advising students on careers in manufacturing technologies.
Clock hours will be available. Visit the website http://www.mtag-wa.org/ for a list of resources, all suggested by previous attendees.
