Join ProtoCAM on Friday, November 10 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for the Manufacturing and Coding Days Event at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, PA! We will be educating students on the various careers available in the 3D additive manufacturing field, presenting a 3D printing activity, and giving away some specially-made 3D-printed parts!
Both manufacturing and coding are fast-growing, high-tech fields working to advance and improve people’s lives in an ever-changing world. Manufacturing is a profession in high demand in the Lehigh Valley, and is considered one of the “high priority” jobs, while coding is one of the most sought after skills in the world.
Though in great demand, jobs in these fields can often be poorly perceived by students. Events like this are necessary to show students what kinds of careers and skills are utilized within these industries. When educating students about STEM and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) careers, we also work to change the perception of these career paths to ones of prestige and skill.
This event enables middle school students to explore the worlds of manufacturing and coding and to discover a wide variety of jobs in these fields. The event features opportunities to meet professionals, participate in hands-on labs, and engage in a wide variety of activities to inspire tomorrow’s manufacturing and coding professionals. Come decipher the importance of manufacturing and coding in our society and construct a better understanding of their critical role in our ever-changing world!
This event is open to middle school students in grades 6-8, as well as parents and educators. Attendees can expect to learn about the many careers available in the manufacturing industries, as well as encounter cutting-edge technology and participate in hands-on experiments and activities to further immerse them in these fields.
