The Society of Manufacturing Engineers is taking the message that ‘Manufacturing is Cool’ to young people. Their new Website, www.manufacturingiscool.com , is designed to help pre-teens and teens understand the coolness of manufacturing.

“If we are going to inspire enough young people to pursue careers in engineering in the coming decades, we have to show our kids how fascinating math and science can be,” said Glen Pearson, president of the SME Education Foundation. “With this Website, we’re showing kids all the cool things they could do if they pursue a career in manufacturing.”

The site features a wide array of case studies and interactive information designed to demonstrate to students how the science and art of manufacturing can combine to create a fulfilling career. It is a Website worth sharing with others.
