To celebrate Manufacturing Month, the Caterpillar Foundation, in partnership with Discovery Education, is proud to highlight educators in STEM in the United States who are committed to advancing the next generation of doers in STEM fields. Held annually on the first Friday in October, Manufacturing Day encourages companies and educational institutions to open its doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders to show the reality of modern manufacturing careers.  

As manufacturers seek to fill 4.6 million high-skill, high-tech and high-paying jobs over the next decade,  Manufacturing Day empowers manufacturers around the country to come together to address their collective challenges so they can better help their communities and future generations thrive.
