The Augusta GreenJackets, Single-A Carolina League Affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, in partnership with Augusta Technical College and the WORC Grant announce the Third Annual Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Night at SRP Park.

Students and families are invited for the Friday, Aug. 25 even.  Gates open at 6 p.m., and the first 1,000 fans will receive a rally cowbell presented by Augusta Technical College as well as access to the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Fair on the main concourse, according to a news release from the Augusta GreenJackets.

“Augusta Technical College is excited to host the third annual advanced manufacturing and engineering technology night at SRP Stadium,” said College President Dr. Jermaine Whirl. “This year we’re excited to showcase our industry partners while celebrating the first participants of our middle and high school advanced manufacturing summer camps. We look forward to engaging students, parents, and the general public about the great careers available in our region.”

The Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Night looks to continue to build off the momentum of last years event.   This evening provides K-12 students throughout the CSRA and their parents a unique look into the world of STEM education and opportunities. Participating exhibitors will allow students to receive a hands-on experience in a variety of areas including virtual and augmented reality, robotics, 3D animation and printers. To see the full rundown visit:

The evening festivities will kick off at 6 p.m. Upon arrival at SRP Park, students are invited to check in at the Young Innovator’s Club table to receive a checklist to visit each vendor set up on the concourse. As students and parents visit and experience each exhibitor at SRP Park, they’ll sign your checklist. Upon completion, turn-in your checklist at Guest Relations Booth – located by the main entrance on the concourse (next to the Beestro) – and they will receive a special gift.

“If you have a student in K-12 and haven’t had the opportunity to attend this event in the past we invite you to mark your calendar to make sure and join us,” said GreenJackets Vice President Tom Denlinger. “In partnership with Augusta Technical College this evening showcases to students many of the exciting opportunities available and coming in the CSRA, it’s a can’t miss evening.”

From 6 to 8 p.m., guests will be able to see the amazing technology, talent and work experiences that make up the exciting new world of Advanced Manufacturing in the CSRA. All the activities and exhibits are being planned to share that story, and the evening programming and entertainment will be designed to open the eyes of young people who represent the future manufacturing workforce.
