Bring Your Students to this Interactive, Engaging Exploration of Careers Making What Matters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 In 2023, Polaris MEP and the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association will host a kick-off event for Manufacturing Month that will offer 8th, 9th and 12th grade students a “taste test” of manufacturing careers.

Please commit your school to participating! Younger students may find the experience influences their learning pathways. Seniors (and your team) will learn more about post-HS opportunities.

WHAT:

A highly interactive and fun career event! Stations throughout the Providence venue will give students a chance to
• code a cobot,
• begin reverse engineering a part with 3D scanning technology,
• solve a puzzle using Lean thinking,
• “paint” fabricated metal via VR goggles,
• build a tower by applying standard decision-making processes,
• and more.

WHEN:

Wednesday, October 4, 2023. Buses will drop off students in time slots beginning at 9am for a 2-3 hour long experience. Each bus will be given a designated time window upon registration.

WHERE:

Farm Fresh Rhode Island, 10 Sims Avenue, Providence, RI 02909

HOW:

Use the form at right to register your interest in participating.

LOAD-IN/PARK:

School Buses can drop students off at the entrance on Sims Ave. They can then park on Sims (not blocking loading-zone) or in the parking lot off Kinsley.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS:

Polaris MEP is the state’s non-profit Manufacturing Extension Partnership center, mission-driven to expand the career opportunities the sector offers to Rhode Islanders.

The mission of the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association is to be the unified voice of the Ocean State’s 1,400 manufacturers. We advocate at the federal, state, and local levels for sensible policy solutions that strengthen manufacturing, and serve as a bridge connecting our members with the resources they need to compete and grow.
