WHAT IS MAKERS GONE PRO AT CAL?
Through fun and engaging hands-on activities, this event provides students and community members an opportunity to understand and learn about the world of making things, and how these activities relate to the region’s robust manufacturing sector. This initiative is part of a coordinated regional Manufacturing Day effort that includes workforce investment boards, community colleges and the school-to-work consortium.
Manufacturing Day is a national event that occurs annually on the first Friday of October. The event highlights this country’s advanced and growing manufacturing sector by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is – and what it isn’t.
Makers Gone Pro at CAL welcomes U.S Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and Senator Jeff Merkley to this year’s event.
