The goal of this conference is to upskill technical educators, link manufacturing, manufacturing stakeholders, and education, to share best practices, learn about the latest technologies, and establish lasting relationships and partnerships. Educators will be better equipped to prepare students, who may pursue careers in advanced manufacturing. This year we will be at the Moorhead High School Career Academy, 2800 27th Ave S, Moorhead, MN 56560.
This event will provide cutting-edge industry knowledge and educational best practices for teaching in-demand CTE skills across multiple conference tracks, including Mechatronics, Welding, Machining, Quality in Manufacturing, and Employability Skills. There will be multiple breakout sessions and hands-workshops focused on these topics, dynamic and engaging keynote speakers, manufacturing tours, exhibitor opportunities, and multiple networking opportunities.
