About Us

What is Project Mini Chopper? 

Project Mini Chopper is a Manitowoc County wide effort to promote careers in manufacturing.  This fall, there are four teams that have taken on the challenge of designing and building a mini-chopper. 

The High School Manufacturing Project is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Progress Lakeshore and The Chamber of Manitowoc County with supporting sponsorship by area businesses, local high schools, and Lakeshore Technical College.

The project will give high school students real life experiences as they build the mini chopper as part of their academic curriculum throughout the school year. 

Participating students will: 
Learn about manufacturing careers
     Gain new skills
     Connect with area employers
     Experience real world issues
     Meet new people
     Have FUN!

Our Mission

Assist students, parents, educators and the community understand that manufacturing provides excellent career opportunities, which will help create a skilled workforce to meet manufacturing needs today and in the future.
