Bringing Science On the Road - #MFGDAY16

Friday, September 23, 2016 | Workforce Development, Manufacturing Day

Everyone agrees:  We need to get the youth of America excited about manufacturing. Doing that can prove challenging, but one unique program, the PlastiVan, is getting the job done.

The PlastiVan Program is a great way to WOW and excite young people about the science and the vast opportunities the plastics industry has to offer.  The PlastiVan program travels to schools and companies throughout North America, educating people of all ages about plastics chemistry, history, processing, manufacturing, sustainability, and applications.”

And to celebrate #MFGDay16, the PlastiVan will visit Washington state schools and bring its unique, exciting program to over 500 students.  This is a great way to expose students to science and technology and significantly increase their knowledge of plastics' contribution to our world today.
