BLOOMINGTON – Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus is opening its doors to nearly 300 area high school students and more than 150 elementary students on Friday, October 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Manufacturing Day. Ivy Tech, Hoosier Hills Career Center, and various industry partners are hosting an interactive day that focuses on health, biomedical, IT, and manufacturing careers.
In the afternoon, high school students will take hands-on tours to experience a day in the life of a community college student in various academic programs, including design technology, healthcare, and life sciences, which is a leading industry in the area.
High school students will also learn about how Ivy Tech dual credit classes prepare them to earn community college credentials, including certifications and technical certifications that lead to employment in high-demand jobs and that transfer to Indiana public colleges.
Some interactive demonstrations will be performed by IU Health, Platformatics, Tasus, HFI, and Cook Medical, among others.
