Middle-School Students Learn What’s So Cool About Manufacturing Through CCEDC’s Video Competition
With the state and national focus on reviving the manufacturing industry in America, students from 16 middle schools in Chester County and Delaware County endeavored to win a video competition – “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” – dedicated to changing outdated perceptions about advanced manufacturing careers.
The contest paired teams of students with local manufacturers.
The teams then created a two-minute video profile of what the manufacturers produce and how they make their products, all with the goal to generate awareness of what an advanced manufacturing career looks like to a tech-savvy generation.
Videos were reviewed by a panel of judges for awards. Also, a “Viewers’ Choice” category was open to the public and resulted in more than 47,000 votes.
