Manufacturing Day – Michigan Works! South East

Manufacturing Day 2018

If you haven’t been around the manufacturing industry in the last 5-10 years, you may have a different perception than what this industry actually represents. Modern manufacturers are high-tech facilities equipped state-of-the-art technology and highly skilled (and highly paid) workers. Manufacturing Day seeks to dispel these myths by opening their doors to our youth through their schools to show what modern manufacturing is today!

On October 5th, manufacturers across our region will open their doors to local youth through their school districts. Students and educators will have the opportunity to learn about manufacturing and the many exciting career opportunities it provides.
