Inspire the next generation of manufacturers.
DISCOVER MFG WEEK
Manufacturing Week is part of the national MFG DAY initiative to address common misconceptions about manufacturing. Manufacturers across West Michigan introduce their communities to modern manufacturing with facility tours, open houses, block parties, and more. Discover Manufacturing has branded Manufacturing Week as the most successful Manufacturing Day/Week/Month throughout the nation.
Discover Manufacturing Week 2021 is November 1-5 & November 8-12!
Discover Manufacturing Week 2021 will be both virtual and as in-person as possible. Virtual events will be held from November 1 through November 5. In-person tours will take place from November 8 through November 12. Manufacturers may participate in both virtual and live tours.
As we did in 2020, we will provide live virtual events that will be recorded for future use by students, parents, and educators on the Discover Manufacturing YouTube Channel. Each session will last 30 minutes and feature two manufacturers speaking to workers performing a job within their facility. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions during a live question and answer session with both manufacturers.
