Southwestern Community College’s 2nd Annual Advanced Industrial and Technology (AIT) Exploration Day was a great success! During the event, a select group of students and their instructors from across southwest Iowa spent the day touring two local industries, Vanmark and Wellman Dynamics. It was a fantastic learning experience as the tours reinforced in the students the practical applications of the Employability Skills and the Technology Literacy components set out by the Iowa Common Core.
