Georgetown County Day of Boeingkbaker
PIA Myrtle Beach was able to participate in the Georgetown County Day of Boeing, held July 9th. The Boeing Company, who operate a manufacturing plant in nearby Charleston, visited Georgetown County to see various STEM related initiatives in the area.
Students from Plantersville Summer Academy prepared for the visit from Boeing by organizing an Aviation Week, where they toured various aeronautic facilities in the area. PIA was one stop on their list, where students were able to learn about the education that could eventually lead them to a career at Boeing. An article featured in the South Strand News discussed the full events of the day, and the hope that groups like this will encourage young students to consider STEM careers in their future.
