Monday night was an exciting night for employees and
community members at Spectrum. 15 students ranging from 8th-12th grades from a variety of
local school districts attended a Chippewa County Explorer Program (CCEP) event
here at Spectrum.
CCEP is a new collaborative program between Chippewa County,
the Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation, and the Boy Scouts of
America to add an addition to the Scouts' Explorer Program, which provides
hands-on career experiences to scouts starting at age 12.
This past Monday students worked
with Spectrum employees to learn about what goes into product development. Here the students
are shown doing an activity that relates to team work, communication, and integrating
those ideas into the product development process.
Spectrum Explorers will meet the first Monday of each month
to learn about all the various aspects of manufacturing, including:
Research & Development
Sales & Marketing
In addition to all of this, participants will receive soft
skills training such as how to conduct themselves in an interview and how
responsible, productive employees should act.
