During the month of October 2022, students in grades 6-12 within 14-counties of northwestern Pennsylvania will be exploring the diverse career opportunities in manufacturing, and also sharing their own stories of how manufacturing has impacted their lives. All students participating will be eligible for random prize drawings of Amazon Gift Cards. The program packet has all the details for the student's participation. The activity packet can serve as an artifact for PA's education requirement for career exploration.
In addition, the website provided (www.nwirc.org/mfgmonth) will also have career path stories from local manufacturing superheroes that can be used as additional assignment or classroom discussion.
National Manufacturing Day is always the first Friday of October, and this year falls on October 7th. What better way to kick of Manufacturing Month but with this fun activity for students to become more aware of manufacturing companies and careers in their own backyard. Use the materials as a classroom activity, an extra credit assignment, or just pass along the info to your students to participate on their own.
These details can also be found at www.nwirc.org/mfgmonth.
