General Motors in Spring Hill will be holding a free Advanced Manufacturing Camp on Thursday, giving high school-aged youth the chance to get first-hand experience on everything manufacturing. The camp will be held at the General Motors Plant in Spring Hill over a two-day period from 8:30 a.m. Thursday to 4 p.m. Friday, with spacing limited.
Designed for high schoolers grades 9 – 12, the camp will see youth work with local engineers and solve problems, get involved in team-based work simulations, get exposure to high tech jobs in advanced manufacturing, as well as receive a tour of the facility.
Following the camp’s conclusion on Friday, parents can see what their children learned during a “demo demonstration,” which will put participants’ newly-acquired knowledge to the test.
The camp is organized by the South Central Tennessee Workforce Alliance in partnership with General Motors Spring Hill Manufacturing.
Founded in 2003, the SCTWA is a nonprofit organization that aims to bring together workfroce development partners in the Southern Middle Tennessee area, as well as provide workforce training and education to citizens to further bolster the region’s economy.
Opening in 1990, the General Motors plant in Spring Hill has been a major economic player in Middle Tennessee for decades, and employs nearly 5,000 people, making it among the top five employers in the state.
The General Motors plant is located at 100 Saturn Parkway, just off of Main Street. To sign up for the free camp, click here. Registration is open while spaces last.
