STEM Unit: Exploring Advanced Manufacturing on Cape Cod

Manufacturing Cape Cod

This mini-unit is designed to provide high school students with opportunities to learn about the advanced manufacturing processes used at Sencorp White as well as to expand their understanding of local career opportunities available to them. Students will learn about the differences between an Engineer and an Engineering Technician and relate the various jobs in these categories to opportunities at Sencorp White. In addition they will have the chance to learn about both degree and certificate programs available at Cape Cod Community College in these fields. At the end of the unit students will have completed both pre-visit and post-visit lessons, visited Cape Cod Community College and Sencorp White and explored advanced manufacturing right in “their own backyard.”
