What is Manufacturing Day? It is a national day in which high school students can learn about modern-day manufacturing, career options and more. Students are able to visit a local facility and envision their future careers. They can connect current classroom learning to on-the-job skills. Careers in manufacturing today are much different than years ago. Today, the manufacturing industry utilizes technology to create and build the latest and greatest products.

The 2024 goal for the Macomb Intermediate School District (MISD) in conjunction with the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development (MCPED), is to have more than 2,000 students from all 27 high schools in Macomb County participate in Manufacturing Day. 

MFG Day host site

We are looking for host sites in modern manufacturing facilities to offer 90-120 minute tours and showcase the different types of careers offered. Groups of 30 or less chaperoned students will be touring local manufacturing sites. We can provide ideas for making every tour a success, with a virtual Q&A session as well as an orientation breakfast in September to match host sites with visiting schools. We will walk you through the process. The deadline to sign up as a host site is July 31, 2024.
