PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:

Future Ready Center-Manufacturing is a partnership between Wichita Public Schools and WSU Tech to offer relevant, career-based manufacturing programs to all students in Wichita Public Schools. Located adjacent to North High School in a former Dillons Grocery Store, FRC-Manufacturing is the home to four academic programs: Aerospace Manufacturing, Assembly and Production Manufacturing Technology, Maintenance and Automation, and the Aerospace Engineering Plane Build sponsored by the Airbus Foundation. With support from the City of Wichita via a $1.7 million ARPA grant, the facility provides training and education on cutting-edge manufacturing equipment and processes to prepare the manufacturing workforce of the future.
We’ll start the program with a brief panel from the creators of the FRC: Kelly Bielefeld, Superintendent, Wichita Public Schools, and Dr. Scott Lucas, Vice President, WSU Tech. They’ll be joined by Eric Shipman, Principal, Wichita Public Schools-Future Ready Centers.
