Ketchie Invites 5th Graders to Facility for Math-Based Learning
We love seeing our industries take a proactive approach to preparing the next generation of manufacturers. In celebration of National Manufacturing Month in October, Ketchie Inc. invited 150 5th graders from Winecoff Elementary School to their facility for some math-based learning and a tour. The visit tied together Manufacturing and STEM as the first week of November was also National STEM Week. Ketchie was excited to get to know their neighbors and share their pride in manufacturing!
