MFG Day 2013 Events: This Friday, October 4th!

MFG Day 2013 Events- This Friday, October 4th!On Thursday, we introduced you all to MFG Day 2013, the second annual national celebration of manufacturing. This year’s manufacturing day is taking place this Friday, October 4th, and we want everyone to get out and get involved!

In our introduction to the event, we mentioned plant tours as a good way to get involved with MFG Day 2013. Manufacturers all around the country are teaming up and opening up their factories to the public, allowing anyone to stop in and take a look at what’s new in the world of manufacturing.

A while ago, we compiled a list of 5 of America’s coolest factory tours, where you saw videos of cool factories from around the country. And this Friday, you’ll have the chance to go through and see some of Nebraska’s coolest factories when they open up for manufacturing day.

We definitely recommend that you stop by a couple of these factory tours to see first-hand what Nebraska manufacturing has to offer. Who knows–maybe these tours will inspire Nebraska’s newest generation of skilled workers in manufacturing!

Anyone interested in learning more about MFG Day 2013 should see the event’s website here (their Facebook and Twitter pages are also great resources). And as always, if you have any questions for us here at Dream It Do It Nebraska, you can always contact us in the comments or on Twitter
