Humanetics Participates in Local Student Workforce Development Event

October 11, 2016 - Humanetics participated in the northern Ohio based FutureMakers Manufacturing Showcase for 9th grade students as part of a workforce development event sponsored by EHOVE Career Center in partnership with the Erie and Huron County Economic Development Corporations. The purpose of the event was to bring awareness to viable manufacturing career paths that students can begin to consider. The day-long event brought out about 1,100 students from 11 area high schools to join over 25 local companies in hands-on activities that introduced them to the skills needed to have successful careers in manufacturing.
 
As the leading producer of Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs), Humanetics introduced the students to the many career fields that must come together to make a sophisticated crash test dummy.  With an emphasis on manufacturing, students were advised of the diversified skills that can be learned and applied when working at Humanetics and other manufacturers. As participants visited the Humanetics table, they were provided with manufacturing and assembly drawings and asked to construct a specific dummy subcomponent within a 10 minute period. This hands-on exercise acquainted them with reading a drawing and applying their interpretation to the assemblage of the dummy.
 
Humanetics was pleased to see so many students take an interest in the activities showcasing manufacturing skills that were on display at this event. The success of the Showcase underscores the need for a future workforce that is willing to consider manufacturing as a career path and gain the training and skillsets needed to succeed. It is imperative that future generations have alternatives that make manufacturing careers a viable choice.
