Indiana's TekVenture Hopes to Boost Skills for Manufacturing Workforce
We recently reported on Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) coordinators Michael Mitchell and Rachel Bennett Steury traveling to Indianapolis for a panel discussion led by Congressman Joe Donnelly (D-IN), 'Playing to Win: Indiana’s Future as America’s Manufacturing Leader.'
One of the points of the conference was the need to keep America's workforce skilled and up-to-date on the needs of 21st Century U.S. manufacturing.
Along those lines, Michael Mitchell highlighted the work of TekVenture.org, a Ft. Wayne, Indiana-based organization that provides "laboratories and workshops in which the public can engage tools, materials, subjects and mentors for modeling on the common creative ground where art and technology meet."
