Manufacturing Day in South Bend
The South Bend Community School Corporation's CTE Department, in partnership with nearly 20 manufacturing facilities, Ivy Tech Community College and the St. Joe Co. Chamber of Commerce, hosted nearly 500 students for Manufacturing Day events. The day-long celebration aimed to increase awareness of CTE opportunities and highlight local manufacturers. Participating students each toured training facilities at Ivy Tech and visited three local businesses.
SBCSC CTE also announced it will be adding an Introducing Automation & Robotics course to its already 23 different College & Career Pathway programs. They will highlight this and other recent developments and initiatives at the district's upcoming CTE Pep Rally on November 8, 2014.
