On October 3rd the nation celebrated Manufacturing Day. And we at M&M Box were happy to take part. It is a day to get the word out about the importance of manufacturing. By bringing the importance of manufacturing to the forefront of people’s minds, we can encourage the next generation to follow in our footsteps. The importance of Manufacturing Day is shown by a growing skills gap and a lack in STEM education.
The skills gap is a growing concern for the manufacturing industry. With re-shoring in full effect, the country and industry needs more people to fill the shoes of those retiring and of the new jobs that are being created. The answer to the skills gap is STEM education. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Getting younger people interested in the field of STEM will surely help the manufacturing industry, as well as the country at large.
Manufacturing Day and the push for STEM education go hand in hand. On October 3rd, manufacturers across the country stood up together to educate the youth about the rewarding work of manufacturing. We are proud supporters of STEM education and hope you will reach out to us to learn more about it.
