Sumter Today: Sumter County students learn about the technology used in manufacturing


Sumter Economic Development, the LINK Economic Development Alliance and the South Carolina Department of Commerce hosted the third annual Manufacturers and Technology Expo for eighth-graders across multiple campuses of Central Carolina Technical College. Eighth-graders choose a career cluster as they approach high school, so the expo was a chance for them to be introduced to manufacturing and the opportunities the industry presents through a full day of interactive technology and STEM activities and tours.
