On March 16th Neu Dynamics attended a very dynamic initiative at our local Hatboro Horsham High school. The event was called Manufest and it was attended by over 270 students and parents.
The event was a showcase of local companies that are encouraging students to consider a career in advanced manufacturing. At the opening of the show we listened to Jeremy Bout speak about his career in manufacturing and he was amazing at getting the message across to the kids on a level that excited them.
Here is a quick promo on his work and his message:
I was so impressed with the students that took time to visit our booth. They asked very direct and smart questions about what a career in manufacturing, mold making and electronics would be like. I had one parent say to me, “You know, I never really thought about where and how things are made. Now that I am here and looking at all of these companies I am amazed and what is being manufactured in our backyard”.
That’s the word we need to get across to our younger generation. It’s OK if you want to learn a trade and that working with your hands and using creative ability is available right here in the USA. Small companies are the backbone of America and manufacturing is here to stay, so we need to educate our youth about the opportunities.
