11th Graders participate in MACNY program

On Tuesday, January 9th, five juniors from Madison Central School toured a pair of manufacturing facilities in the local area as part of the Partners for Education & Business Program. 

Partners for Education & Business is a program led by MACNY (Manufacturers’ Association of Central New York), a 501(c)(6) association that works on behalf of over 300 organizations that work in manufacturing, or offer goods and services that support manufacturing.

The program is for students in 11th and 12th grade. It runs from September through May and offers networking, experiential learning, and career development opportunities to high school students interested in manufacturing and adjacent fields. Students learn about presentation skills, meet professionals and gain an understanding of how facilities operate in a wide range of sectors. 

As part of yesterday’s trip, students visited Worthington Steel in Rome, and Danfoss, located in Marcy. Both organizations are significant employers in the region.

This opportunity is made possible in part by the Madison-Oneida BOCES Staff and Curriculum Development team, and its Exploratory Enrichment CoSer. Other participating districts include Morrisville-Eaton, Cazenovia, and Canastota. 

A special thank you to Mrs. Wrebella at Morrisville-Eaton for getting these pictures into our hands.
