East Bay Manufacturing Day - a video

In 2015, the East Bay enjoyed a dramatic rise in MFG Day activities. These open-door events have gone a long way to acquainting young people with the great opportunities the entire sector has to offer and dispelling the myth of manufacturing as being dirty, dark, dangerous, and in decline. In addition to the many events that took place across the region, four Alameda County cities teamed up with community colleges, manufacturers, and school districts, to host this large and highly successful gathering....  

America has been a manufacturing power house for the last 100 years, and as we enter the 21st century, the industry has become transformed with the advent of new technologies that enable automation, precision and the opportunity for a new generation of talent to enter this explosive market. This year’s East Bay Manufacturing Day celebrates the field of Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering as a vibrant and exciting new field that has opened its arms to innovation and the next generation. On this day, 450+ students from San Leandro, Hayward, San Lorenzo and Castro Valley Unified School Districts toured 14 manufacturing companies in the Eden Area region of the East Bay and culminated at Chabot College to tour community college program options in the industries of making and additional technical fields.
