In honor of National Manufacturing Day on October 6th, OrthoWorx held the "Think Ortho Tour" last Thursday right here in The Orthopedic Capital of the World. Over 200 8th graders from area schools & their parents attended the program that hoped to encourage students to pursue technical careers in the growing orthopedic industry. The event included tours of Ivy Tech's Orthopedic & Advanced Manufacturing Training Center (OAMTC), the Warsaw Area Career Center Welding Lab, and a local orthopedic company, Precision Medical Technologies. Students & parents both were able to learn about the orthopedic industry, advanced manufacturing career opportunities available in the Warsaw area, and the skills needed to pursue those exciting careers. The Think Ortho Tour was part of OrthoWorx's Talent Development Initiative to address the skills gap in the orthopedic industry. Special thanks to OrthoWorx, PMT, the WACC, & the OAMTC for making this event possible!

The OAMTC Director, Tom Till, along with our WACC Director, Ronna Kawsky, had the opportunity to share about this event on the local news which can be viewed here:

Hi, my name is Jon Scroggs. I Graduated from North Side in Ft Wayne and then graduated from college. My wife, Amanda, and I settled in Warsaw in 1990. We raised three children and now have 6 grandchildren in the area. I have spent 35 years in Manufacturing and the trades. I enjoy boating and swimming with the grandchildren. I am currently renovating a bank barn, enjoy working in my wood shop, and I volunteer at the Lakeview maker space on Mondays. I am excited to be a teacher here in the Warsaw Area Career Center & have had a great start to the school year so far!

Students in Mr. Huffer's Project Lead the Way: Honors Principles of Engineering classes recently collaborated in teams to design & build a bridge made out of just paper. The students were challenged to design the longest bridge by using only one piece of paper and then hang their designs in the school to see if their bridge would hold up. They did an awesome job working together to design & construct their bridges.
