The SME Education Foundation inspires high school students to discover the manufacturing industry at our Student Summits co-located at SME events across the country throughout the year. Our students summits deliver student-centric programming that educates the next generation about the manufacturing industry with technology demonstrations, hands-on challenges and a guided, interactive SME event show floor tour.

The drone challenge moves onto SOUTHTEC where teams of high school students compete against each other to test their engineering skills while learning about manufacturing processes and procedures. Students will also tour manufacturing and engineering companies during a guided, interactive tour of the SOUTHTEC event show floor.

“My students 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. ”
