Follow-Up from 2014 Manufacturing Day Webinar & Next Steps

FLATE's first webinar planning for 2014 national manufacturing day in Florida was held on Friday May 9, 2014. We excited about the robust interest in participating and planning for another successful Manufacturing Day  in Florida later this year. As a follow-up to our first webinar, FLATE has posted a number of resources that will help our partners plan for the big day. Please feel free to access these resources on FLATE’s wiki where you can view and download the following items:

In addition to these resources, FLATE is also planning to host at least two more webinars to prepare for
Manufacturing Day in Florida which is Oct. 3, 2014. During these upcoming webinar(s) Manufacturing Day partners will get a chance to review curriculum aligned to the new Florida Standards developed by FLATE to enhance tour experience for all participants. WE encourage all industry and educators across Florida to attend the webinar which is tentatively set for August 2014. More details will be posted as we draw closer to the date.

Thank you all for your partnership and friendship supporting manufacturing education in Florida. We look forward to another successful Manufacturing Day in Florida and serving as a national model for other states to emulate.
