Gear Motions’ Nixon Gear Division recently hosted a STEM Job Shadow Day for students from a local high school. Fifteen students from Solvay High School were invited for a tour of our precision gear manufacturing facility in Syracuse. The day allowed student to see firsthand what a modern manufacturing facility is all about and learn about different careers in modern manufacturing.
During the tour, the students were able to spend time with our employee owners and see a variety of technologies and processes that are essential to being a world class gear manufacturer. The students were amazed at learning that gears made right in their hometown are part of so many products. They also enjoyed seeing the advanced gear manufacturing technology in action and learning about the different jobs involved in gear manufacturing.
We’re proud to be able to do our part to educate the next generation of the workforce about careers in the manufacturing industry and we hope to host another STEM Job Shadow Day in the near future.
