How Will You Inspire the Next Generation This Manufacturing Day?

Let NFPA help by putting you in touch with educators or by helping to promote your event.

Manufacturing Day EndorsementNFPA recently registered for the second year in a row to endorse Manufacturing Day℠ (MFG Day). This year’s MFG Day is right around the corner on Friday, October 5. By engaging in this program, members can share their expertise with students, promote their companies and career opportunities, and make meaningful connections with educators.

This event engages the next generation of manufacturers and can be extremely flexible. Traditionally, MFG Day has consisted of facility tours. However, NFPA members can take different approaches as well, including:

  • Employee Q&A: Engineers explaining to students what ‘a day in the life’ is like, how they got into the industry, etc.
  • Team Project: Engineers working with students to help assemble a fluid power classroom kit.

Interested in getting involved? Does your company already have an event planned? Share your story! Contact Stephanie Scaccianoce at sscaccianoce@nfpa.com.
