NTDA member Felling Trailers is supporting local school robotics teams through a Careers in Community program where high school juniors and seniors can also learn the trade of welding and other skills. They also support welding camps for girls and boys ages 12-18, and give manufacturing tours to high school and college level students.
“Robotics has grown into every part of our modern life, everything from cars and smartphones to thermostats and gaming consoles are tied to robotics and mechanical engineering,” said Brenda Jennissen, CEO of Felling Trailers, Inc. “As a manufacturer, we know how robotic automation can impact production processes. We see first hand the kinds of job opportunities that those individuals with robotics backgrounds will have as members of the workforce. Supporting these area teams the last several years is one way we can be good stewards in our communities and the future of our industry.”
“The opportunity that our area Robotics Teams provide to the students to work and create together and compete with other teams to solve a common problem in an ever-changing environment, is so valuable. The ingenuity, creativity and teamwork that programs like this inspire in students is priceless,” said Jennissen.
