MPMA members are invited to attend a FREE webinar, "Get Involved in Dream It. Do It. Minnesota," which includes the statewide Tour of Manufacturing.
Are you looking for an opportunity to magnify and help change the perception of the manufacturing world? Getting involved with Dream It. Do It. Minnesota, which gives an opportunity for you – the manufacturer – to tell your story to the next generation of talented workers.
This fast-paced, 30-minute webinar, led by Dream It. Do It. Minnesota Executive Director Jaimee Meyer, will give an overview of the program with particular emphasis on the upcoming Tour of Manufacturing. Each October, manufacturers across the state open their doors to provide students, parents, and the public the chance to learn about modern manufacturing. Tour attendees have the chance to see how STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills are put into practice every day in modern manufacturing.
The Dream It. Do It Minnesota Statewide Tour of Manufacturing is open all year, but most of the tours take place during Manufacturing Week, October 1 – 7. Learn how to get involved, host a tour, and change the public's perception about advanced manufacturing. There will also be a question-and-answer period at the end of the webinar.
After registering for the event, participants will receive call-in information for the webinar. Registration closes Friday, September 14.
