Meyer Tool Hosts High School Manufacturing Day
As a learning organization, Meyer Tool’s mission to make a positive difference in the world doesn’t end with building the impossible. We strive to grow this generation and future fabricators knowledge and careers. One way we do this is by annually hosting Manufacturing Day for high school students that have shown interest in STEM programs. This year we partnered with Oak Lawn High School to have 20 students learn about different careers in manufacturing.
The day began with a presentation of careers, how students can get into the industry, and what building the impossible entails. This gave a brief overview about how what students learn in the school makes a difference in the real world. The highlight of the day was the shop tour, where students got to see fabrication experts in action. The tour was led by our welding and machining supervisors, Eric Cunningham, and Ken Urban Jr. Students got to see demonstrations of CNC programming, 5 axis mills machining real parts, and spool welding.
Every year Meyer Tool looks forward to the opportunity to inspire the next generation of fabrication experts. During a time when employees switch jobs more than ever before, its important to get the youth excited about a career in manufacturing. We would like to thank Oak Lawn High School and Kelly Kenny, for letting us be apart of this great event.
