MFG Day is an annual, national movement for manufacturers, educators, and community leaders to host events that raise awareness of careers and advanced technology in the world of manufacturing. The goal is simple: to inspire and build the workforce pipeline.

But here’s the scenario for so many manufacturers in 2020: COVID-19 has turned the world upside down and likely, your initial MFG Day plans to host a live event have been derailed. The good news is that, with the right tools, Manufacturing Day 2020 can provide you with an opportunity to engage students, job-seekers and parents in live or virtual classrooms and right at home!

Rock MFG Day with Edge Factor and ABB


The FREE Rock MFG DAY toolkit empowers audiences to experience different workplaces, explore career pathways and learn soft skills all through a STEAM perspective (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math). 

From September 28 to October 2, 2020, you will be able to host live or virtual events and use these tools to highlight manufacturing careers and showcase how STEAM comes alive in manufacturing. 

Each day is dedicated to a specific focus within STEAM:
