School kids from the fourth to eighth grades will get a chance to attend summer manufacturing camps around Ohio, thanks to the efforts of U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.
Brown has partnered with local businesses and community leaders to host 27 summer camps in 21 counties. The camps demonstrate to children that alternatives exist to pursuing traditional four-year college degrees and to dispel common stereotypes that manufacturing jobs are outdated.
Students tour local manufacturing facilities and work on hands-on projects that allow them to see where a STEM education can take them in the real world.
