In honor of National Manufacturing Day, GLOBALFOUNDRIES is opening its doors to students and educators of the local K-12 community. As a manufacturer of the world's most advanced semiconductors, GLOBALFOUNDRIES is uniquely positioned to offer insight into its manufacturing technologies and how they are changing the way we live, work and play. Most importantly, National Manufacturing Day provides a valuable tool to shape public perception of manufacturing, inspire young minds, and expand education and career pathways in an industry that lies at the heart of the US economy.
This year, we are particularly excited to host MFG DAY at all three of our U.S. manufacturing sites. As part of MFG DAY, we have developed an exciting program that features a bunny suit demo, hands-on workshops, activities, and more!
To make things even more exciting, we have created a special MFG DAY Challenge, which calls upon students in grades K-12 to manufacture a special design using at least one integrated circuit along with any one or more predetermined elements that include light, sound, movement, color, and alternative energy. Students are invited to exhibit their projects at our MFG DAY event and participate in a friendly competition with other schools that culminates with an award ceremony for the most innovative designs.
