Polaris MEP, Rhode Island Manufacturers Association: RI's Future in the Making - Career Exploration Experience

Providence, RI
10:00am - 12:00pm UTC-0500
In-person Event
*** An Interactive, Engaging Exploration of Manufacturing Careers for 8th, 9th and 12 Graders ***

Polaris MEP and the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association will host a kick-off event for Manufacturing Month that will offer Rhode Island high school students a "taste test" of manufacturing careers.

Younger students may find the experience influences their learning pathways. Seniors will learn more about post-HS opportunities.

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.

Tuesday, October 4, 2022. Buses can drop off students beginning at 10am and pick up at 12pm.
