The NEXTPack Scholarship Program will be a fast paced, highly interactive experience that engages high school students looking to enter the world’s third largest industry before they step foot on a college campus or in a company building. Utilizing the Packaging School’s online flagship offering, the Certificate of Packaging Science, select NEXT School Network students will embark on a twelve-course program that teaches the fundamental materials, processes, and influences, such as design and sustainability, that shape the packaging industry. To bring the lessons to life, site visits to local packaging, material handling, and manufacturing companies will be arranged. The NEXT School Foundation Packaging Scholar program will allow employers in the packaging industry to have a voice in the way their future CEOs, managers, and employees are cultivated.
The Packaging School recently published a Packaging Design with SolidWorks course. The development of this course came out of a need from the Beuth University of Applied Sciences (Beuth Hochschule für Technik). As a complement to traditional higher education, PackagingSchool.com enables Universities to bridge theory with packaging-specific applications. Beuth University had a need for packaging expertise and The Packaging School was able to supply that, from thousands of miles away.
