Students who are too far from Chicago to be able to visit the International Manufacturing Technology Show in person will be able to experience IMTS in their classrooms thanks to “Technology Applied,” a new, online virtual field trip that will be filmed at the show. Teachers can register to access any or all of the show’s three 30-minute episodes, which will be broadcast on three consecutive days during the IMTS: September 10, 11 and 12.

The virtual field trip will be filmed, produced and hosted by the team that creates The Edge Factor Show. By taking an exciting look at some of the automation, equipment and processes demonstrated at IMTS, the episodes show students the technology they are likely to employ if they pursue manufacturing careers, and will also illustrate how science and mathematics are applied in manufacturing every day. CNC machining, additive manufacturing, aerospace manufacturing and racecar technology are some of the topics to be addressed, with content appropriate to grades 5-12. Learn more by watching the teaser above and by visiting the “Technology Applied” registration page.

Consider encouraging the teachers you know to register for this event. Thanks to the support of Sandvik Coromant, the lead organizer of the virtual field trip, registration is free for the first 1,000 teachers who sign up. Learn more.
