What is What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?
What’s So Cool About Manufacturing is a state-wide program dedicated to changing perceptions and attitudes about advanced manufacturing careers. Manufacturers sign up to become a host site and paired with a local middle school. A small team of students and their teacher meet with their assigned company to create a video that includes interviews and footage of “what’s so cool” about your business. This was developed as a project based educational media contest for middle school students to compete for various awards for their finished video. The entire community votes for their favorites. A celebratory awards ceremony honors all the manufacturers and video winners shared through the WhatsSoCool.org website.
