NH Manufacturing Month – October 2020

An entire month of celebrating manufacturing in New Hampshire!

For the last 7 years New Hampshire Manufacturing Extension Partnership with help from the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs, the Community College System of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Department of Education and many other partners organized NH Manufacturing Month. NHMEP hopes to encourage students into building their career with local manufacturers, keeping them in state after graduation.

What is it all about?
In previous years, throughout the month of October, high school and middle school students went on field trips to visit local manufacturers. During those trips, manufacturers had the opportunity to show students how cool manufacturing is and inform them of all the in demand careers their field has to offer. This year, our plan is to engage students in virtual visits to manufacturers.

How will it work this year?
The goal is to build digital content to bring the in person event into a screen format. NHMEP is recommending that manufacturers use impactful power point presentations using photos, videos, employee interviews, and job/internship opportunities geared towards high school students to increase awareness of career pathways that their manufacturing organization offers. The sky is the limit so NHMEP is encouraging manufacturers to use their own methods to showcase their products and services.

Using the Zoom platform for meetings, NHMEP will allocate about one hour for each session including a Q&A from the attendees. The event will take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-11am and 1pm-2pm starting on October 1st.

To participate, email Training Coordinator Jill Duddy – jilliand@nhmep.org

Manufacturing Month is capped each year by the Annual Governor’s Advanced Manufacturing and High Technology Summit, which will be virtual in 2020 and feature expert speakers, panelists and interactive workshops.
