Extraordinary things are happening behind closed doors in manufacturing facilities across North America. X Games world champions are CNC machining prosthetics for challenged athletes and veterans. Inventors are meeting with Environmentalists to explore unique methods of sustainably harvesting wood to make guitars. Composites Managers are reimagining the lightweight materials they use to build race cars. Chemists are tweaking components in glue to find new ways of manufacturing drum kits.

The Behind Closed Doors film by Edge Factor weaves inspirational stories of women and men using advanced manufacturing technology to push back the edge of what’s possible. As innovative teams of people merge imagination with science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM), lives are changed! Based on this film, Edge Factor has created an online, turnkey package of event resources for schools, companies, and organizations to host Manufacturing Day events. The Rock MFG Day Kit contains cinematic media, interactive resources, and hands-on projects to promote and host an event that will change perceptions of manufacturing, inspire students, spark conversations, reach parents and provide feedback on the success of the event.

“I used the Rock MFG DAY Kit at two different events and showed the Behind Closed Doors movie. It was a HUGE hit as people could really see what we are doing,” said Capital High School’s Welding and Machining Instructor, Jim Weber. “The movie was the best thing of all because it really showed such a diverse look at manufacturing.” This Manufacturing Day, use the Behind Closed Doors film and the Rock MFG DAY Kit resources to reveal modern technology and careers, engage and inspire your audience and demonstrate how manufacturing impacts our world.
