    The world is rapidly changing. Industry 4.0 is a big part of that change across all industry sectors. These emerging technologies include robotics/automation, internet of things (IoT), 3D printing, cyber-security, virtual/augmented reality, and digital fabrication. These technologies are radically changing industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, retail, and more.

    Attend this workshop to learn more about one of these emerging technologies (IoT) and how it is connected to careers in manufacturing. Through this engaging, hands on STEM program, students will explore the intersections of manufacturing, robotics, computer programming, and design. Additional resources will be provided to learn more about these exciting and well paying careers.
