     HTEC Network      October Update

October 7, 2016

Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Although Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October—this year is Oct 7, 2016—but really, any day can be a Manufacturing Day.

NEW Edge Factor Film for MFG Day: 

American Ingenuity

This MFG DAY, be equipped to captivate your audience & impact your community

In October 2016, Manufacturing Day events across North America will help awaken the next generation of makers with Edge Factor’s latest film, American Ingenuity.

Companies, schools, and organizations will use this film to take audiences on a journey through time… from the dawn of mankind building survival tools, through the Industrial Revolution and into the extraordinary world of today’s makers using advancing technology to push back the edge of what’s possible.

As MFG DAY's Strategic Content Partner, Edge Factor produced a FREE turnkey package of event resources called the Rock MFG DAY Kit. 
The online Kit includes the American Ingenuity and 
Behind Closed Doors films, as well as resources to market events, inspire millennials, reach parents and measure impact through interactive activities.

Rock MFG DAY Kit Features

Check out a few items included in the free kit.
The Kit equips you with event promo materials, main stage presentation tools, interactive resources, hands-on projects + post-event tools.

Play looping videos of trivia and technology in action, on TV's at your event.

The Interactive Perception activity provides insights on your audience's perception of manufacturing.

Watch the chips fly! CNC machine a drum pedal based on the American Ingenuity film.
