Local teachers in manufacturing externship program this summer

Three local high school teachers are among 10 educators who will work as engravers and fabrication tool interns this summer in manufacturing facilities throughout the state.

Now in its 10th year, the teacher externship program immerses instructors in the latest industry practices and technologies so that when they return to their classrooms in the fall, they can pass along the latest ideas, information and techniques through their classroom programs.

The Connecticut Business & Industry Association administers the program on behalf of the College of Technology's Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing.

Michael Bono of Waterford, who teaches technology and engineering at Valley Regional High School in Deep River, will be working at Seconn Manufacturing in Waterford.

Jim Cartier of Mystic, who teaches manufacturing at Ledyard High School, will be working at Orion Manufacturing in Mystic.

Wayne Turner of Colchester, who teaches manufacturing technology at Windham Tech, will be working at Alpha-q Aerospace in Colchester.

The teachers receive a $4,000 stipend.
