Online Platform and Competition Are Changing the Course of STEM Education and Advanced Manufacturing Learning

Today, LIFT – Lightweight Innovations For Tomorrow, a national Manufacturing USA institute, in partnership with Tennessee Tech University’s iCube, and other state partners, launched the second year educational competition using MakerMinded, an online STEM learning and activity platform.

The MakerMinded campaign impassions students about advanced manufacturing careers and provides them with transformational Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning experiences that set them on track towards that goal. LIFT piloted this national initiative in Kentucky and Tennessee beginning October of 2016 and is launching two new campaigns this school year in Ohio and Detroit, Michigan.
