Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Day is an opportunity for manufacturers to connect with schools and universities in their local communities to give students an opportunity to experience practical, hands-on learning and to help manufacturers give back to the community while helping the next generation of manufacturers.

  • In 2011, the average manufacturing worker in the United States earned more than $77,000 annually.
  • The United States is undergoing a manufacturing renaissance. Companies are hiring, and manufacturing jobs are stable, interesting and high-tech.
  • As United State's schools introduce more STEM classes, there is a greater need for hands-on learning.
  • By bringing manufacturers to schools, students can get practical, hands-on learning, access to mentors and have an opportunity to explore options for a manufacturing career.
