Industry Connect – On February 17th, ELECTRI partnered with the Maryland Chapter NECA, Baltimore Electrical JATC, and IBEW Local 24 to host Industry Connect for local high school students and educators. Experts from all corners of the electrical industry led students through interactive stations that demonstrated the innovative technology in the EC industry.
The discussions were engaging and thought-provoking, giving both students and educators the opportunity to learn about the trades and test the latest trends and technologies that are shaping the future of the industry. Students were able to get hands-on experience with:
- Robotic Total Stations
- X7 Point Cloud Scanners
- XR10 Hololens
- OpenSpace 360 Cameras
- Drones in Construction
Contractors came to Baltimore, MD event to advocate for careers in the electrical industry with this very receptive audience. Last, but certainly not least, the Maryland Department of Labor attended to support ELECTRI’s workforce development initiatives and learn more about our career development and education resources for students.
The February Industry Connect was a major success and ELECTRI can’t wait to see what’s next for this amazing Maryland community and group of students.
Special thanks to BuildingPoint Northeast, BuildingPoint Southeast, and OpenSpace for leading the interactive stations.
Additional Industry Connect events are now being scheduled around the country. For more information on bringing this key workforce presentation to your area, contact Anna Trapane, ELECTRI’s Director of Future Workforce Development at Anna.Trapane@electri.org.
