Students visit Southco for video contest

Northley grade 8 students visited Southco in Glen Mills, the global headquarters facility and manufacturing site, to learn more about all the opportunities that exist at many manufacturing companies for job opportunities for engineering, marketing, and project management.   The visit was in preparation for the Northley Team's video entry for the "What's So Cool About Manufacturing (WSCAM) video contest.  
The annual What’s So Cool About Manufacturing® video contests excite students across Pennsylvania to explore cool manufacturing careers and produce profiles of companies. Each contest features an online vote for its Viewers Choice Award. The contest format has also been adopted in more than a dozen additional states.
The students met with employees and filmed details about the organization.  They are now working on their video project and research.  They enjoyed meeting with engineers and other professionals to contribute to their entry.  
This is an annual video contest to excite students across the state to explore cool manufacturing careers and produce creative profiles of companies and is through the Chester County and Delaware County IU.  Learn more at their website and look for the voting campaign coming soon.
