CLAAS Teaches Technical Skills to Local Students

CLAAS North America is working with Omaha seventh graders to help them find their inner engineer and technician-driven aptitude. The company recently received the Developing Youth Talent Initiative Grant from the State of Nebraska, and is using the nearly $100,000 to encourage creativity and technical skills.

The new CLAAS Academy is home to the company’s North American apprenticeship program that strives to expose young people to careers in manufacturing. A portion of the grant money was used to build activity kits for students participating in the Partnership4Kids after school programs, which works to expose students to careers, develop career paths, and ultimately help them achieve a higher level of education.

Partnership4Kids works with Title 1 (low-income) schools within the Omaha Public School System. They target young persons who show promise and drive, but may not possess the means of pursing a higher education.

This program is designed to encourage students to pursue training in technical and manufacturing careers – an area that is lacking in many parts of the U.S. To reach this goal, CLAAS apprentices prepared and packaged approximately 130 “unload auger” kits as part of their training. The kits included a 3D-printed auger, tubes and fittings, motor, electronics, and a bag of soybeans.

In a series of four sessions, the students will try their hand at assembling the auger and making it work. Each session will be guided by two CLAAS mentors from different departments to help with the project and share information about their own careers.

The four sessions teach:

  1. How to put together a low voltage circuit
  2. How to assemble the frame
  3. How to create and test the auger circuit
  4. How to install the motor and test the auger using soybeans

CLAAS is honored to work alongside our non-profit partners to provide leadership and knowledge to the youth of tomorrow. See what we are building in the video below.
