Businesses partner with Nebraska middle schools to raise early interest in manufacturing

It’ll take years until they see the results, but Nucor Detailing Center is willing to wait.
The Norfolk company is partnering with Norfolk Junior High School and four other area schools to expose seventh- and eighth-graders to manufacturing and IT-related fields and machinery.
The long-term goal? To have more people consider careers in manufacturing and IT, like those available at Nucor. The shorter-term goal? Introduce students to the field early so they are more likely to choose relevant classes in high school and college programs.
