“I just wanted to take a minute and thank the SME Education Foundation for a great student summit. My kids really enjoyed the interaction with the drone building time and they were taken back by all the vendors and their willingness to talk to them about the trade. Manufacturing is alive and well and SME is helping to keep it going strong. ”
