San Jose, CA

Virtual Event
NextFlex, America's Flexible Hybrid Electronics Manufacturing Institute, will celebrate Manufacturing Day on October 1 with a virtual tour of the NextFlex Technology Hub and breakout rooms for K12 students and teachers from across the country. Students will be able to speak directly with NextFlex engineers about STEM field careers and emerging technology.

How To Join This Event

Each year, Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) is held on the first Friday in October in order to show students, parents, and the public what modern manufacturing is all about.  The fourth industrial revolution is rapidly changing our world. New advanced manufacturing technologies bring about whole new careers, requiring a skilled workforce interested in pursuing them. From bioengineers, to data analysts to robotics technicians, and all of the operations in between, there is a place for everyone in manufacturing!

Having long been the cornerstone of the American economy, manufacturing continues to provide highly skilled and highly paid jobs that create thriving communities. Still, the diversity of existing opportunities and the corresponding career potential that accompanies those opportunities is too often overlooked or misunderstood which is why each year, Manufacturing Day celebrates and showcases both the work, and many of the individuals, that comprise the US manufacturing sector.

At this year’s Manufacturing Day, NextFlex will be airing a new video showing how manufacturing solves real-world problems. NextFlex engineers will identify a problem and design a solution using Flexible Hybrid Electronics! After the video, students and teachers will be able to ask the engineers questions about advanced manufacturing and the benefits of working in the manufacturing sector.

Registrants will receive a confirmation containing a login link.
