What's so cool

From the Daily Local:

A Chester County student video contest is being conducted by the Manufacturing Alliance of Chester and Delaware Counties in collaboration with industry representatives, several school districts and the Chester County Intermediate Unit.

The subject is: What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?

The contest is an effort of the alliance designed to dispel the outdated image of manufacturing as boring, dirty and dangerous and to introduce the community to the lean and clean work environments consistent in the high tech field of today’s manufacturing.

Ninth grade student teams from area school districts will take a teacher and a GoPro camera kit into local manufacturing companies to create a two minute video capturing what they think is cool about the company’s products, workforce, and technology.

The contest culminates at an awards ceremony on April 6 celebrating the students’ work and critical findings through trophies, speeches, certificates, medals, pictures and videos.

The participating schools are Phoenixville Area High School, West Chester – Henderson High School, Oxford Area High School, Great Valley High School, Avon Grove High School, Octorara Area High School and Downingtown STEM Academy.

The participating companies are CNC Manufacturing, Acero Precision, USSC Group, Southco, Aerzen USA, Omega Design and Hillside Custom.
