For the last 5 years, Edge Factor has celebrated MFG DAY across North America by helping our communities inspire students, parents, educators, and community leaders with the Rock MFG Day Kit.
The Edge Factor high impact media helped take the students on an exciting journey “Behind closed doors” to meet the teams of manufacturers as well as learn about the technology they use to build the world around us.
In response to the challenges we face with COVID-19, both schools and organizations need e-learning solutions to inspire the next generation of makers with a virtual solution. We are excited to announce that in partnership with ABB, we are making available at no cost at all new 2020 Rock MFG Day: STEAM Experience. The free turnkey toolkit will help businesses connect STEAM & Manufacturing with their local educators.
“ABB has been a strong supporter of MFG Day for many years,” said Tracy Long, Vice President Communications for ABB’s motors, drives and mechanical power transmission divisions. “We are excited to partner with Edge Factor this year to expand our reach and take even more students, parents and teachers behind closed doors to learn how STEAM intersects careers in the exciting world of manufacturing.”
Jeremy Bout, Founder and Host of Edge Factor says “Edge Factor has been promoting MFG Day celebrations since I sat on the board in 2015. No doubt that COVID-19 has created a new normal for industry, schools, communities, and families and many have asked me, ‘We can’t open our doors this year, so what do we do?’ Edge Factor and ABB stand ready to help and we want to provide simple ways for communities to celebrate who they are and what it is that they manufacture.”
