Although the national “Manufacturing Day” generally concentrates the activities around a day, the activities and the opportunities for our students, educators, and manufacturers continue Year-Round.
Here are some of the important categories:
STEM and Fair Events
Among the reasons that Long Island is THE place for Manufacturing is that our educators and students are attracted to the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics that weaves through the discovery and building of products.
Here are some of the events that our manufacturers, organizations, and most importantly, our students should consider.
These programs run from 9:00–11:30 am and are FREE to attend. Registration is required.
Students in grades 8-11 are invited with their guardians to gain knowledge and the tools needed to help make the best-informed career and educational choice they can by hearing from industry professionals.
This year’s STEM Hub presentations will be:
January 20th, 2024 – IT & Aerospace
February 10th, 2024 – Design, Production, & Engineering (i.e Manufacturing)
March 9th, 2024 – Life Science & Healthcare

Our Island produces “Reports” important to our “Manufacturing Day” that range from Industrial Development to school district STEM offerings. All are fodder for thoughts on coordinated methods of generating excitement in the opportunities for our future generation and the realization in our manufacturing-related firms of the “Acres of Diamonds” that will amplify their future — Here on Our Island.
The collection of reports is not meant to be exhaustive, but examples. More will be added as suggested.

Innovating the Talent Pipeline
Released close to the time of the Mfg Day LI Events.
The Report by our SCIDA, HIA/LI and WDI is a solid survey of the needs of the manufacturers in the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge, but applicable to all our firms, and provide hints at a roadmap for our educators.
COURSE HANDBOOK – Engineering Technology, West Islip
A great example of publications by leaders of our School Districts outlining the various STEM-related courses and activities.
An example is the description of the student team of the organization “Robotics Club” which contains divisions that mimic the fact that Long Island’s manufacturers offer opportunities in many areas.
The logos that indicate partnerships with the educators that offer opportunities for both.
Growth Drivers Amid Disruption – Citrin Cooperman’s Pulse Survey
Long Island’s branch of Citrin Cooperman has a leadership role in this periodic survey and report.
An important survey reveals the technologies needed for a successful manufacturer and distributor and indicates the technologies of the future that should be trained and hired for today.
The first section “Applying Advanced Technologies” suggests that analytics, AI, Machine Learning, and Intelligent automation give significant commercial and technical advantage.
Our Long Island Manufacturing Day is a vibrant work in progress. Register with us to keep up to date on additions and changes.
