MTU America hosted its fifth annual Girl’s Day event at the MTU Aiken Plant Tuesday, May 1. Aiken County high schools participated to learn about the manufacturing industry – a typically male-dominated field.
At this year’s event, MTU hosted local ninth grade girls for a day of activities including:
• An educational lecture about manufacturing processes
• A scavenger hunt and team building activity
• A tour of the MTU Aiken Plant and opportunity to network with employees
• An introduction to MTU America’s award-winning high school apprenticeship program
Through Girl’s Day, MTU America invests in Aiken youth and introduces local girls to female role models in manufacturing. The event aims to cultivate an understanding that girls and boys are equally capable of success in the industry. This year, over 80 girls participated in Girl’s Day.
