The Society of Manufacturing Engineers Education Foundation launched "Manufacturing is Cool!" web site. Each of the items on the Manufacturing is Cool! Web site drills down and expands information on required engineering disciplines challenging students to become more involved in the basic requirements of engineering programs — math, science, and technology.
The landing page, featuring cartoon-like, colorful graphics, reveals the top of a kid’s desk with a jumble of likely-found items each of which is actually its own landing page that drills down its own intriguing hallway of knowledge. Each stop along the way provides tutorials, one-on-ones with young people involved in a variety of learning experiences. It also includes You Tube videos featuring plant tours and technical information interspersed with kids doing their own rap music orchestrations.
