Parkinson Technologies Opens Doors to Local High School Students
With facility tours, company aims to raise awareness about US manufacturing and spark interest in industrial careers
Manufacturing is alive and well in Rhode Island—and it’s an industry ripe with career possibilities. This was the message conveyed to local high school students by Parkinson Technologies, which invited students from Cumberland High School to tour its facility on November 1 and December 14, 2013. The goal of these tours was to banish common misperceptions of manufacturing, raise awareness of the industry, and inform students and educators about the types of skills currently in demand in industrial settings.
