SOUTHBURY, CT (WFSB) — A huge event in Southbury brought together middle school students from across the state on Wednesday.

The task of Manufacturing Mania was to highlight career opportunities in the industry

“We’re doing all these different kinds of engineering experiences and manufacturing to see what it’s like,” said Bailey Higgins, of New Britain.

While it’s fun for the students, it was also a valuable lesson.

“We just learned about manufacturing and stuff and we’re sort of doing this stuff in science too. So, we’re just exploring more about this,” said Abby Wasik, of New Britain.

The 7th annual event was put on by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, and hosted 200 students from 10 middle schools across the state.
