Manufacturing jobs are the infrastructure of our state and our communities. Nearly 40% of the jobs in Sheboygan County are manufacturing jobs. In order to continue to grow as a community and state, we need to guarantee manufacturing companies an appropriate atmosphere in which to thrive. One element of that atmosphere is an able and educated work force. But, how do we developed interest in manufacturing jobs when funding for tech ed is being cut from schools and manufacturing jobs are requiring more advanced skill sets?

Welcome to Project G.R.I.L.L.

Project G.R.I.L.L. showcases manufacturing career opportunities to High School students through real word design, production, and distribution. Its unique blend of cooperation between manufactures (sponsors), high schools, teachers, students and parents creates a learning environment where students truly experience the manufacturing process.
