Sinclair Community College Hosts Over 350 Students for Manufacturing Day 2023
On Friday, October 6th, Sinclair Community College hosted its second annual Manufacturing Day event in Dayton, Ohio. This event, organized by Sinclair FlexFactor Program Manager Julie Huckaba, brought together 369 students from local middle- and high schools, 26 teachers, and numerous industry partner representatives to celebrate National Manufacturing Day. The student turnout was double that of the inaugural 2022 event. All the students are completing the FlexFactor project-based learning program with Julie and her team this semester, during which they are identifying a real-world problem they want to solve, conceptualizing a product enabled by Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) to solve that problem, building a business model to sell their product, and then presenting it in a final pitch to a panel of judges.
