Makers Gone Pro MFG Day Event
October 4, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Through fun and engaging hands-on activities, this event provides students, families and community members an opportunity to understand and learn about the world of making things, and how these activities relate to the Portland region’s robust manufacturing sector. This initiative is part of a regional MFG coordinating effort that includes Workforce Investment Boards, Community Colleges, and the School-to-Work Consortium.
Makers Gone Pro has continued to attract students, teachers, parents, and community members throughout East Multnomah County to dive into the world of manufacturing through interactive booths hosted by local manufacturers and makers. We’ve been successful at connecting youth with peers and industry leaders and highlighting the different paths to navigate the educational and workforce opportunities that exist right here in our backyard.
