Students at Loveland Middle School (LMS) got a chance to take part in Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 1, 2021. Robotics students and students in Sandy Broderick and Nelson Arblaster’s Design and Modeling classes met remotely with Alex Seder, General Manager of NOV Dayton. The company makes equipment used in mixing things like plastics, paints, and food. Students got to ask questions about modern manufacturing jobs they might want to consider after graduation.
“The Manufacturing Day presentation by NOV could not have been more relevant to my class. NOV showed us the different engineering and manufacturing positions needed to manufacture mixers and turbines. My 8th-grade students just finished designing and building a "wind" turbine mechanism using VEX parts this week! This real-world connection to what they did in class was perfect,” Mr. Arblaster said.
#MFGDay21 connects companies and schools in the effort to fill 4 million high-skill, high-tech, high-paying jobs in the manufacturing field over the next 10 years.
