National Manufacturing Day
| National Manufacturing Day, held on the first Friday of October, is a national celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. These successful field trips were made possible by a grant from the PA Department of Labor & Industry to the Bucks & Montgomery Counties Workforce Development Boards. The Partnership thanks the participating manufacturers and schools.
Teachers and students appreciated how the employees loved talking about their jobs and the sleek, clean operations in the manufacturing industry. More than one student remarked that seeing robotics in action was “very cool.” All students walked away with a solid understanding of the reasons why manufacturing is returning to the United States.
The event inspires and educates the next generation to consider manufacturing careers and change public perceptions of manufacturing. MFG DAY is an opportunity for manufacturers to open their doors to showcase their works and facilities as well as career pathways to the future pipeline of workforce.
An annual event that occurs on the first Friday of October with the estimated 400,000+ students, parents, and community members attending across the country. Local students have opportunity to visit manufacturing facilities, explore and engage with manufacturers, and get an in depth view of careers in manufacturing.
