October 6, 2017 — Davidson, NC; Richmond, VA; Baltimore, MD; Orlando, FL — In  celebration of National Manufacturing Day 2017, InSource Solutions will again host and participate in events in four states as part of our ongoing effort to change people’s perceptions about today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the outstanding opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide.

The event in Davidson, NC will be held at the InSource office with two local schools participating in two sessions: one is a look at optimizing a manufacturing environment to produce the maximum output of high quality products at the lowest cost.  Then students will participate in a robotics competition, competing in both technical and business tracks.

The InSource Richmond office will be the location for a LEGO® Maze Challenge, involving students from local schools learning to program robots that will navigate a maze. They will design an advertisement for their fictitious company that sells the robots. Students will work in teams of 5 and local InSource staff will mentor the teams focusing on the technology as well as the business challenge.

The InSource Baltimore Staff will be participating in the Technology Showcase and Matchmaking event being held by RMI (Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland). Maryland governor Larry Hogan has been invited to raise the profile of Manufacturing day and proclaim October as “Manufacturing Month in Maryland.” More information for this event can be found here: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07eeffj9w8aa800204&llr=oua7rfcab

Later in October, InSource will take part in the Orlando Maker Faire. Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects.  Learn more here: https://www.makerfaireorlando.com/
