In partnership with Dream It. Do It. Minnesota, Tri-State Manufacturers' Association is proud to facilitate tours of manufacturing facilities throughout the West Central region of Minnesota. Each October, manufacturers across the region open their doors to provide students, parents, and the public the chance to learn about modern manufacturing. Tour attendees have the chance to see how STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills are put into practice every day in modern manufacturing.
Many tours occur during the month of October, but tours may be planned anytime throughout the year. Schools who wish to take a group of students on a tour may apply for a transportation scholarship.
This year, we are planning to host tours for educators in Alexandria and Fergus Falls. Participating educators will have the opportunity to tour 2-3 high-tech manufacturing facilities. We anticipate that the tours will occur late winter or early spring. More details will be available soon. If you are an educator who is interested in participating, or a manufacturer who would like to host a tour, please contact Dream It. Do It. West Central project coordinator, Michelle Landsverk by email or by calling 218-280-1755.
