What is "SMI"?
SMI stands for "Summer Manufacturing Institute," which is a collection of STEM-to-career summer camps for 5th and 6th grade students. At Camp, students learn about the connections between STEM concepts and in-demand manufacturing careers. Campers will complete hands-on projects, meet industry experts, tour local manufacturing facilities, meet company CEOs, and much more! The goal of the camp is to expose young people to in-demand manufacturing careers.
Ashtabula Summer Manufacturing Institute is operated by the Alliance for Working Together (AWT) Foundation in partnership with A-tech; Ashtabula County Commissioners; Ashtabula County Job & Family Services; OhioMeansJobs Ashtabula; Growth Partnership for Ashtabula County; Gazette Newspapers; Grand Valley Schools; Country Neighbor; local Ashtabula County businesses; and the office of Congressman Dave Joyce.
