Manufacturing Day — the annual celebration of modern manufacturing that is meant to inspire the next generation — will be held this year on Friday, Oct. 4. Now is the time to begin planning.
MFG DAY is an opportunity to educate young people — and their parents and educators — about 21st century manufacturing. According to Deloitte’s 2016 survey, 84% of students who attended MFG DAY events emerged “more convinced that manufacturing provides careers that are interesting and rewarding.”
The OMA encourages its members to open their doors to students, parents, teachers, and community leaders. (Here is who has already registered.) While MFG DAY is Oct. 4, companies and organizations should plan their events on the date in October that works best for them. Events can be marked as public or invitation-only.
