Summer Manufacturing Institute

Check back in spring for our SMI 2019 schedule!

The Summer Manufacturing Institute is a chance for students in grades 4 through 6 to experience an inside look at the latest techniques and tools being used in manufacturing right here in the Mahoning Valley. YWCA and Oh Wow! work together to make sure the week is packed with hands-on engineering challenges and visits to local facilities where students will meet manufacturing professionals while learning the tricks of the trade!
