The SME Education Foundation will launch a national fundraising initiative this fall to secure funding for programs that address perceptions of manufacturing as a career, and advance manufacturing education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
The "We Advance Manufacturing Education" will offer accelerated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and provide students with hands-on opportunities to learn. Since 2006, the Foundation has invested more than US$3 million of its own funds toward the Foundation’s summer youth programs. In 2010, the Foundation will infuse more than $650,000 toward the programs, as well as continue to offer financial support through scholarships and awards.
