Obtaining feedback from industries is vital to reviewing curriculum content of schools preparing a competent workforce to meet industries’ needs. Florida Makes in partnership with Polk State College (PSC) and FLATE (Florida Advanced Technology Education) are requesting your extremely valuable participation. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

FLATE and its statewide networked partners are working together to plan for the biggest MFG DAY or MFG Month ever.
