Here is another link-and-leverage success story. A group of community leaders in North Central Indiana were discussing the need to get more high school students interested in manufacturing careers. The region’s manufacturers had good jobs available that were going unfilled. One person at the meeting made a passing comment that most of the young people she knew were only interested in playing Guitar Hero. That triggered someone else to think about a Purdue professor who runs a sort of fantasy camp for adult guitar enthusiasts, helping them make their own guitar. The group then begin to think of kids who like to play Guitar Hero as an asset and then linked these three assets together. Purdue now runs a high school summer camp where students make their own guitar and learn about advanced manufacturing.
