Local Manufacturers Build STEM Enthusiasm

From WTSP.com:
At Southern Manufacturing Technologies (STM) they make parts for the aviation industry. And some of their parts have certainly departed. "We have parts in satellites, parts on Mars-the Mars Rover," says company president Roy Sweatman.
But what this company wishes it could manufacture is a better-trained workforce. "We could hire a dozen people today with the right skills," says Sweatman.
Other local manufacturers have the same problem, so they’ve teamed up to create a new program announced Thursday called STEM Goes to Work. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Middleton High’s robotics program is just one example of STEM learning in area schools.
And soon STEM students on both sides of the Bay will be touring companies like Southern Manufacturing Technologies. The aim of the program is to generate enthusiasm for Stem careers.
