October is Manufacturing Month, part of the “Connecticut. Dream It. Do It.” initiative and aligned with a nationwide effort to promote educational and career pathways in manufacturing.
Everything officially kicks off with National Manufacturing Day, Friday, Oct. 4, and two regional “Manufacturing Mania” events—a showcase for students, their families, and teachers to learn how Connecticut-made products impact and improve their lives every day.
The first Manufacturing Mania event will be held Oct. 4 from 10 am to 1 pm at Toyota Presents Oakdale Theater in Wallingford. The second is scheduled for Oct. 18 from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich.
Among other events being planned are open houses at technical high schools and manufacturing facilities across the state.
CBIA is participating as a Manufacturing Month partner. For more information, contact Karen Jarmon, Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology Inc., at 860.282.4211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
