Manufacturing Day 2024 Presented by Rockwell Automation

Join us for our annual Manufacturing Day celebration at Great Lakes Science Center! Manufacturing Day brings together hundreds of students from middle and high schools across Northeast Ohio to explore careers in advanced manufacturing.

Corporate volunteers will inspire the next generation of the workforce through mentoring sessions, hands-on STEM activities, a manufacturing career expo, and more. Industry sponsors, community partners, and educators will work together to connect talented students with future career paths in a memorable all-day event.
