The State of US Manufacturing Webinar @whitehouse @mfgday #MFGDay16
An IndustryWeek and Internet of Things Institute-hosted webinar is taking place on October 18th. You can register at Industryweek!
This webinar will feature interviews with thought leaders from associations, companies and other manufacturing organizations about the current state of U.S. manufacturing and expectations/predictions for the next two to three years. Discussion will include the challenges to be addressed, as well as policies needed to address them and including actions that manufacturing executives can take to increase their companies’ and U.S. manufacturing competitiveness.
It will include a brief review/analysis of progress that has been made, since the inaugural Manufacturing Day, toward elevating manufacturing as critical to our nation’s economic future in public policy and in the public image of manufacturing as a career choice.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
