The student video contest is a competition between local area middle schools. The teams spent time at local manufacturers to create 2.5 minute videos about what was “cool” at the manufacturer. The purpose of the contest is to raise awareness among students and parents about today’s advanced manufacturing environment, and the rewarding and engaging career paths and high pay scale available in the manufacturing sector.

“What’s so Cool About Manufacturing” is coordinated by MANTEC. The project was funded in part by a grant from the Powder Mill Foundation. Additional funding was provided by Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology and 9 additional manufacturing supporters. Professional feedback for students was provided by Hayman Studio.
