Innovative event featuring advanced manufacturing and baseball game set for tomorrow at Greenville’s Fluor Field

How about a little technology along with a baseball game.

That’s the opportunity that residents and visitors to Greenville, SC have tomorrow night at the the seventh annual “Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Night” at Fluor Field. The event is hosted by the Greenville Drive, BMW, GE, Michelin, Greenville County Schools and Greenville Technical College. A major goal is to show students and families the variety of high-skill career options available in manufacturing. As such, all K-12 students who will be admitted free.

Leading up to the first pitch of the baseball game between the Drive and the Bowling Green Hot Rods, students and their families can explore a number of interactive displays from numerous local manufacturing firms set up on the field’s concourse. The event will kick off with a panel discussion and question-and-answer session on Fluor Field’s new District 356 entertainment space, moderated by serial entrepreneur and start-up mentor Alex Estevez. Representatives from BMW, Michelin and Greenville Tech will discuss the range of career options in advanced manufacturing and engineering and how industries are working to meet the acute need for skilled workers.
