“I learned many things from Project Grill including learning what out sourcing your work means, what kind of companies we have in Sheboygan County, and many more things. Some of the things that I learned from the companies in Sheboygan County is that to compete with over seas companies they need to be super effective and do their work fast but still have high quality. My experience with Project Grill was one of my high points in the school year because I saw all the great companies that we have that I didn't know we had in Sheboygan like Master Gallery, Sargento, Johnsville, and JL French.“

Brent Loose – Oostburg High School

why do it
Why do it?
  • The world of Manufacturing is greatly different than in was 20 years ago.
  • 70% of the careers in the United States require a Technical Education yet less than 20% of students are attending a Technical College.
  • Project GRILL and Mini-Chopper allow students to see first hand what manufacturing entails and gives them a connection to people in industry as well as their local Technical College.
how to do it
How to do it?
  • Ideas of how to replicate/get started

Start a Leadership Team made up of a representative from your local Technical College, an area high school Tech Ed teacher and prinicpal, interested corporate partners and other interested community members

  • Different models, same goals and outcomes

Be creative. If there is something your area that may draw more interest than a Chopper or GRILL go with it. The goal of both projects is simply to promote manufacturing careers to high school students and raise awareness in the community.
