Take a Manufacturing Field Trip

Program Description:
Visiting a manufacturing plant or experiencing the world of engineering or design helps to shift student mindsets around advanced manufacturing. When students think of manufacturing, they typically think of the "old-school" assembly line. However, manufacturing today is clean and high-tech and a very in-demand domain. It's important that we show students how applicable their STEM skills are to the different roles in an organization so they can visualize themselves in this field.
