NexGen Manufacturing: Making It Real! is a one- day event on Oct 6 for local high school youth sponsored by Carteret Community College. The purpose of the event is to introduce manufacturing as a viable career option to high school students. The morning event will include a hands-on simulation where the students will build Lego airplanes and learn about “lean” manufacturing. The students will also participate in a group activity to create a feasible manufacturing concept for Carteret County. They will conclude the day with a tour of Veneer Technologies to learn about hardwood veneer and plywood manufacturing and pathways to that workforce. This event is co-sponsored by the Carteret Economic Development Council, Veneer Technologies, Frank Door Company, and the Carteret County public schools.
