Southwest Ohio Aerospace RegionAerospace404th Graders, and High School Students 3,500 students from more than 40 schoolsIn 2015, there was a specific focus on creation a pilot in the City of Dayton that could be replicated throughout the SOAR. In addition to the approximately 40 businesses, and 3,500 students from 52 schools who participated in the traditional Manufacturing Day events, The City of Dayton partnered with Dayton Metro Library and the Wizards of Wright (Wright Patterson Air Force Base Education Outreach) to create and teach a maker project in every Dayton Public Schools fourth grade classroom. This incredible expansion means that every fourth grade student (over 900) in DPS will have an opportunity to make something while learning about manufacturing and the career possibilities. Manufacturers participate in whatever capacity they can. All have tours and demonstrations with employees and students, but many try to have additional activities to excite the students.

Greater Peoria Economic Development CouncilEarthmoving30+8th Graders and High School Students8th graders: 400; High schoolers: 800This October, the Greater Peoria EDC is hosting its 8th Annual Manufacturing Expo. The goal of this expo is to introduce students to the highest in-demand manufacturing occupations in the region. The 8th graders will come to a local high school gymnasium and tour 9 manufacturing stations, highlighting welding, machining, fabrication, maintenance, assembly, logistics, engineering, quality, and robotics. The 8th graders will talk with manufacturers and local high school and college students about their experiences in the manufacturing industry. The high school students will give a chance to tour local manufacturing facilities, which will also highlight the critical careers that exist in manufacturing in Greater Peoria.Manufacturers play an essential role in making this expo successful. For the 8th grade expo, manufacturers will provide hands-on, interactive equipment. They will also talk to the students about their experiences in each of their careers. For the high school tours, manufacturers have been working hard to create an effective 2-hour tour of their facility to expose students to each of these careers. They are opening up their doors to students in an effort to develop their future workforce. Through all of this, our regional manufacturers are working hard to increase the positive perception of manufacturing to encourage them to pursue careers in this amazing and innovative industry.Kate Cundiffkcundiff@greaterpeoriaedc.org
