Lenze Americas hosts STEM Career Day for students

Feb. 13, 2019
The event is cosponsored by the Blackstone Valley Education Foundation

Lenze Americas welcomed students from local middle schools on Feb. 7 to its North American headquarters in Uxbridge, Massachusetts. This event was cosponsored by the Blackstone Valley Education Foundation (BVEF), which provides programs and services for school districts throughout the Blackstone Valley area, and enabled students to explore possible STEM career paths in manufacturing.

"We enjoyed opening our doors to the young people in our community to provide a glimpse of what a career in manufacturing and engineering looks like today. It was a pleasure hosting the local students and educating them on the important role our industry plays in our economic future. Some members of this group will be our future engineers, so we were happy to have them join us to participate in exciting learning activities, talk with current staff engineers, and tour our manufacturing facility," said Floyd Spencer, sales and technical training manager, Lenze Americas. "We received nothing but positive feedback from teachers and students, and look forward to working with BVEF to host similar educational events in the future."

Students toured Lenze Americas production floor and were introduced to Lenze Americas as a local manufacturer. Lenze Americas staff and management also talked about the various career opportunities for engineers within the organization’s business functions. Engineering professionals provided insights into potential career paths while sharing what attracted them to engineering and the manufacturing field.

BVEF provides professional development for teachers and school counselors, as well as career-connection programs that assist students in the development of 21st century skills.
