Santana, Monte Vista students tour major manufacturing facilities


“Winners of the design challenge.”

The Grossmont Union High School District specializes in college readiness and professional training for over a dozen high-demand careers. Through the collaborative efforts of select industries and educators, our district has established an efficient and skilled workforce pipeline for California’s biggest industries, including the advanced manufacturing sector in the East County.

In December 2016, students from Santana High School and Monte Vista High School’s Advanced Manufacturing, Product Innovation & Design, Machining & Forming Technologies participated in a tour of two major manufacturing facilities in the East County: Deering Banjo in Spring Valley and Computer Integrated Machining, Inc., in Santee.

During the tours, students observed the full product development process, from manufacturing to shipping, and learned about the importance of product quality. Following the tour, students participated in a design challenge, in which students were instructed to build the tallest freestanding structure out of pipe cleaners without talking or using their hands. 

Later in the day, students gathered for an industry panel and tour of Cuyamaca College, which organized the afternoon activities. The day-long program was coordinated by the San Diego East County Economic Development Council and GUHSD’s College and Career Readiness Department.
