On Friday, October 12, 2018, seventh-grade #UASAtoms attended the Manufacturing Day at SUNY Polytechnic Institute. According to a Deloitte analysis done in 2015, based upon data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and Gallup Survey, over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will be needed and it is expected that 2 million will go unfilled due to the skills gap. At the #UASCS, we believe in preparing our scholars for their futures. Exposing our students to potential career opportunities at a young age is simply one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
