Robotics, Engineering and Technology Days:
Building America’s Tomorrow has become a premier sponsor and partner in the 2015 Robotics, Engineering and Technology Days, and event that will run from December 2-3, 2015 and expose up to 4000 middle school kids and their teachers to the exciting world of manufacturing. In addition to providing funding and content development support to the event organizers, B.A.T. will bring a unique “Battle Bots” robotics competition to the event, as well as other hands-on educational programs and information about modern manufacturing careers.
SME PRIME Schools:
Building America’s Tomorrow is partnering with SME’s PRIME initiative to expand the message and number of schools throughout the country impacted by this program, which is designed to build advanced manufacturing laboratories in high schools and offer highly motivational materials related to modern manufacturing to students to inspire them to take a second look at manufacturing.
Square One 3D Printing Labs:
Building America’s Tomorrow has partnered with Square One Education’s 3D Printing and Innovative Vehicle Design Labs, designed in conjunction with Michigan Tech University, to dramatically increase the number of classrooms with access to 3D printing technology. The ingenious program involves students first building and programming their own 3D printer, then using those printers for a host of manufacturing-related programs for years to come.
