G.S. PRECISION Co-Op Experience for Students
Feb 14 2023
Laconia, NH: G.S. Precision (GSP) Laconia, NH Division is embarking on a new opportunity as a Co-Op site for Career Technical Education (CTE) students interested in exploring a career in Aerospace Manufacturing. We kicked off our inaugural Tool Making Co-Op student, Cheyenne Magoon.
In Spring 2022 GSP Senior leaders presented to Ken Martin’s HUOT Pre-Engineering and Manufacturing students about GSP capabilities in the Aerospace, Space and Defense industry. The GSP School of Manufacturing program was also introduced as post-high school opportunity for the HUOT students. This is a Registered Apprenticeship program that combines on the job training in rotations and college coursework. The GSP-HUOT partnership continued with a GSP-Laconia Shop tour for CTE Teacher, Ken Martin and students. This experience confirmed Cheyenne Magoon’s interest in becoming a Tool and Die maker.
In this Tool Maker Co-Op experience Cheyenne is learning the foundational skills from seasoned Tool Maker, Randy Fitts. The tool room area is equipped with manual mills and manual lathes, similar to machines available at HUOT. In the Co-Op she is learning the real world application of the manual machining skills in the manufacturing work place.
We look forward to continuing the HUOT partnership and developing the next generation of machinists with opportunities for High School Co-Ops, Collegiate Internships, and the G.S. Precision School of Manufacturing. View the G.S. Precision website to learn more.
