Join us to learn about modern manufacturing at a locally-based company who is a global engineering leader and providers systems and services for major customerse in the aluminum industry.
Manufacturing is more than making wickets in a factory. Producing products today includes research and development, high-tech equipment, and an understanding of the global business climate and communication. The objective of this workshop is to enlighten educators at the high school and middle school levels of the many different careers within manufacturing, including engineers, scientists, skilled tradespeople, production specialists, mechanics, machinists, technical writers, accountants, legal support staff and more. By exposing teachers to a sampling of careers in these industries, teachers will gain more knowledge of the manufacturing-related career opportunities our region offers. The workshop will conclude with a tour of Pyrotek's newlybuiltresearch lab, located on WSU Spokane's U-District campus.
Established in 1956 in Spokane, Pyrotek is a global engineering leader and innovator of performance-improving technical solutions, integrated systems and consulting services for major customers in the aluminum industry.
