Join Us For An Exciting Announcement Thursday!

Please join the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (RACVB) and local robotics teams as they announce details of a new collaborative effort that will help to further support high school Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) Education Coalition programs throughout the entire Midwest. This first-ever event in Rockford will draw approximately 400 students from at least 20 robotics teams and is expected to grow year after year.

The event being announced also provides an opportunity to highlight, recognize and connect talented local students, as well as expose future potential engineers from around the Midwest to the opportunities and businesses that are located within the community.

The brief announcement will take place during the Rockford Chamber’s Celebration of Manufacturing Expo & Dinner. As you know, these students are the future workforce and leaders of the manufacturing industry. They are critical assets to sustain and advance our business community, so please come connect, support and congratulate these local students for taking initiative and successfully creating an exciting new regional robotics event. We anticipate that this event will grow year after year and will be a long-standing opportunity to expose our region’s manufacturing excellence to a large target audience.
