What is so cool about manufacturing?

 

Ask the 6 young women in Carolyn Roy’s Creative Technology & Media enrichment group! Working in partnership with KMC Systems in Merrimack, Emma Donnelly, Hannah Ellis, Delaney Kearns, Isabella McCutcheon, Hannah McLinn, and Madison Walden are researching, interviewing and filming this company’s industry and entering a state-wide contest run by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development.   Mrs. Roy’s 2015-2016 team entered last year and working with Stonyfield Organics won 3rd place! That is a tough act to follow but these girls are up for the challenge!

After being chosen through an application process, the girls visited the company and have been working diligently “between classes” editing their production. The contest requires them to create a 3 minute video that answers the question, “What is so cool about manufacturing?”  In addition to their hours filming and editing, they also spent time with John Beaulieu, our district video technician and Sasha Richards and Cam Audet of Industrial Traffic in Bedford learning marketing strategies and editing skills to assist them in creating the best product for their contest entry.

This is a win-win regardless of the outcome of the contest.  These young women will walk away feeling such pride in their work and with college and career skills beyond any class they can take in school!
