The Boys and Girls Club of Door County’s first ever Engineering Partnership Program this year is getting impressive results and recognition. This year’s partner, Marine Travelift started a curriculum back in January for fourth and fifth-grade students from the Boys and Girls Club of Door County. Executive Director Julie Davis says the six-week program included hands-on experience and an obstacle course to test the student’s newly developed abilities.
Davis says the CEO/President at Marine Travelift was happy to have the manufacturer participate in the venture.
Marine Travelift recently was awarded the 2017 Manufacturing Innovation award from the NEW Manufacturing Alliance for working with children and making a difference in their lives. The Boys and Girls Club of Door County plans on partnering with Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding next year on a drafting program, according to Davis.
