Manufacturing Day this year is October 2, 2020, but NWIRC is celebrating all month long. We, along with numerous sponsors and community partners (see below), have launched Exploring the Marvels of Manufacturing. It’s an activity for students in 6th-12th grades within 14 counties of northwest and north central PA. Teachers can use as a class project or students can participate on their own. Students will share how manufacturing touches their own life and learn about companies in the region. They will submit their entry via an online portal to be entered into a random drawing for some awesome prizes from October 1-31, 2020.

Program sponsors are: Edinboro University, Northwest Bank, NWIRC, NWPA-NTMA, NEFF, and ABB. Other regional partners include: Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit (IU5), Riverview Intermediate Unit (IU6), Workforce Solutions, NWPA JobConnect, West Central Job Partnership, Career Street, Crawford County K-12 Career Education Alliance, and Steel Valley Authority.
