As the seventh largest economy in the United States, Ohio’s historically strong industries include Aerospace & Defense, Bioscience & Healthcare, Education, Agriculture, Iron & Steel, and Motor Vehicle Assembly. Ohio-based companies and organizations like the National Coalition for Advanced Technology Centers, National Tooling and Machining Association, Women in Manufacturing, Fredon Corporation, and The Alliance for Working Together Foundation have partnered with Edge Factor in many ways, to produce media in Ohio, launch free toolkits, provide schools with Edge Factor Premium Memberships, and more.
Using the power of cinematic storytelling, Edge Factor takes students and job-seekers on a career journey from "I have no idea what I want to do with my life!" all the way to, “I have browsed the opportunities, made informed decisions, and launched a local training and career pathway.” We have criss-crossed North America to produce thousands of videos and interactive activities that highlight every industry and we deliver these multimedia tools through the Edge Factor platform.
Together with our partners, we are proud to share free access to this media (and much more!) on an all-new landing page called, Ohio has the Edge! This is a family-friendly space, where students, parents, and job-seekers become inspired to launch their own training and career pathways. It features real life stories of people pushing back the edge of what’s possible and using their minds, hands, and technology to build the future and impact lives. With inspirational films, Career Profile videos, Virtual Workplace Experiences, and more, this landing page highlights careers, tools and equipment, soft skills, and STEAM topics that come alive in Ohio companies. To make connections and foster relationships between local schools, families, and companies, this page also includes Profiles with information and links to Ohio organizations and opportunities.
The new Ohio has the Edge page provides a multimedia experience for everyone in Ohio. The page features walk and talk tours at companies such as Mercer Health, Tooling U-SME and Lincoln Electric. The inspirational film "Robobots" which was shot on location in Mentor, Ohio features teams of students using innovation to build combat bots. Students learn how Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math all come alive as robots clash!
Ohio schools, such as Greenville High School, Greenville Middle School, Theodore Roosevelt High School, Celena City Schools, Coldwater Schools, Marion Local Schools, Fort Recovery Schools, Parkway Local Schools, St. Henry School and Minster Junior/Senior High School use Edge Factor learning tools in their classrooms, which is made easy as Educators have aligned Edge Factor media to Ohio Career Field Technical Content Standards Curriculum, specifically The Engineering and Science Technologies and Manufacturing, Health Science and Information Technology Career Fields.
