Young Manufacturer's Academy Students Compete in Robotics Competition

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Students with the Young Manufacturers Academy competed in a robotics competition today.

The Young Manufacturers Academy is designed to reach students in 6-11 grade who are interested in careers in manufacturing.

The robotics competition teaches students important workforce skills like critical thinking, problem solving and customer service.

One judge says this is a great opportunity for kids to learn about this particular career field.

"It's a great opportunity, it's an opportunity to expose these kids to manufacturing and to get the understanding that manufacturing is actually a sustainable career for them," says Michael Garner.

Almost 600 students have participated in the Young Manufacturers Academy sessions in late July and early August.
