Education & Industry | Ready for Manufacturing Day?

October 5 is Manufacturing Day in the US.

Throughout the nation, a variety of manufacturers will be conducting facility tours and making presentations targeted to educators, parents, students and the public.

Visiting a manufacturing facility is one of the most effective ways to discover interesting, real-world careers and STEM in action. (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.)

Here's another point of interest.

In 2010, manufacturing workers earned an average of $77,000 a year. That's $21,000 more than non-manufacturing workers, who earned an average of $56,000 a year.

The Dayton Region Manufacturers Association (DRMA) is actively encouraging members to participate, and it's using our article, Manufacturing in Action, as part of its promotional efforts.

The Manufacturing Day website serves as a central location for manufacturers to sign up and promote their events and for educators, parents and students to find local manufacturers offering tours and demonstrations.

To date, about 50 manufacturers are participating nationwide, and in Ohio, fully half of those who're currently registered are located in the Dayton region.

Meanwhile, don't forget. Whether you're in education or industry, if you and your organization are participating in Manufacturing Day, contact me, share the relevant details, and we'll do what we can to help spotlight your event plans.
