What You Can Expect From a Student-Run Business
It's an investment in your community
Not only are you going to get a great product at a great price, but you'll know that you have reinvested into the future of your community by providing educational opportunities for Rock Valley students! All profits earned at Rocket Manufacturing are reinvested into the program and help to ensure its long-term viability.
You're a part of the educational process
You'll work with high school students on your project from start to finish. This helps them not only build technical skills but communication and problem-solving skills. The lessons learned in Rocket Manufacturing will stay with students for a lifetime.
It may take a little longer
Although we pride ourselves in working hard, we are also working to train students to do things the right way. This often takes more time than a typical manufacturing business may take. We also don't have the luxury of working full days and full work weeks. We work from 2:00 to 3:25 pm each day. We thank you for your patience.
We're not perfect, but we're trying
Although our students are working hard to produce products with top-notch quality, they sometimes make mistakes. We'll do everything we can to prevent mistakes, but since our students are in the process of real-world learning, they can slip through the cracks. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any reservations about your final product. Our commitment is to make things right.
