We are excited to roll out our new approach to Manufacturing tours for Multnomah County.
In the past, we have participated in Manufacturing Day, sending hundreds of middle and high school students to different manufacturing sites in our region on the first Friday in October. The event has become so popular and successful that we struggled to meet the demand for tours on that one single day. To address this issue, and to increase the opportunities for interaction between manufacturers and educators, we have revamped our approach.
Manufacturing Day has now become Manufacturing Month with activities occurring throughout the month of October. The catalogue below outlines various events and opportunities for educators and youth to engage with a number of manufactures in our region including company tours, job fairs and support for class projects to help future "makers" learn more about this exciting industry. Financial support is available to cover the costs of substitute teachers and transportation for students.
