Manufacturing summer camp boosts job skills for Frank H. Peterson students

Updated: Oct 19, 2018


July 25, 2018 - It is estimated that as many as 2.5 million manufacturing jobs will go unfulfilled nationally in the next ten years. But thanks to a unique summer learning opportunity, students at Frank H. Peterson Academies of Technology are gaining the exposure and skills they need to meet the needs of an increasingly STEM-based society.


Through the Illinois-based nonprofit "CHAMPION Now!" students spent days working with a CNC Machine - a standard in the manufacturing industry - free of charge. Watch to learn why leaders say the experience is not only meeting the needs of our economy today, but it is also preparing our workers of tomorrow.
