Welcome to 2015 MFG DAY/Month in Florida!
FLATE and its statewide networked partners are working together to plan for the biggest MFG DAY or MFG Month ever. You can contact your local or regional manufacturing association or FLATE directly if you have questions about how to participate. Below you will find resources and statewide news about FL MFG DAY/MONTH events; resources to help you plan events; upcoming events around the state (once reported) and how to get involved with FLATEs “Made in Florida” Industry Tours on MFG DAY.
FLATE helps regional organizations and local school districts organize student tours. Typically, the “recipe” looks like this:
School districts provide bus transportation; identify programs/ classes to attend tours Regional manufacturing organizations recruit companies to host student tours on MFG DAY (Oct 2, 2015) or any day in October.
Either the school district or the regional organizations or both – assign schools to tour hosts; set bus schedules; align communications between school, company; buses Manufacturers host tours; provide lunch (if possible!) EVERYONE (Organizations, companies, community groups, individuals, friends of manufacturing) – sponsor student MFG DAY t-shirts FLATE – helps connect regional groups together; designs/distributes shirts; provides educator resources; writes/publishes/distributes NEWS; compiles all student, educator, host survey data.
