The Bus is on us!
K-12 Transportation Funding is available on a first-come basis.
Schools across the state are touring manufacturing facilities and discovering that there’s no better way to show students what high-tech manufacturing careers look like. Minnesota Statewide Tour of Manufacturing occurs every year in October, but schools can set up their own tour anytime during the school year, not just in October. While Minnesota State Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence does not coordinate tours, we have resources that schools like yours have found helpful!
If you’d like your students to tour a manufacturing facility, we may be able to help pay part or all of your transportation costs. Applying for funding is easy – just scroll down and fill out the funding application form. Please note that our funds are limited, and we may not be able to support your grant request in full. Transportation funding is subject to available funding.
EDUCATIONAL & PROMOTIONAL RESOURCES:
We have resources to enhance the experience, including:
- Career videos,
- Classroom posters
- Teacher guide
- Career brochures
