Welcome to the Student Summit

The Smartforce Student Summit delivers industry-developed content to provide educators and students with fun and engaging learning experiences centered around our industry's vision of the manufacturing technology classroom of the future.

As an increasing number of the nation's youth consider manufacturing careers, the 2022 Smartforce Student Summit is poised to inspire thousands of students as it showcases the manufacturing technology classroom of the future.

Summit Hours:
Monday, Sept. 12 through Friday, Sept. 16, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 17, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Attendees can expect interactive exhibits from leading industry manufacturers who will demonstrate breakthrough smart, digital manufacturing technologies (Industry 4.0): additive manufacturing, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), automation and robotics, digital twin, generative design, and more. This year, we are giving all teachers a chance to win an Oculus Quest 2 VR headset. Terms and conditions can be found on this page.

As always, the free event is inclusive to students and educators at all levels, from all backgrounds. Student engagement is key and at IMTS 2022, we will be producing professional development sessions for educators as well. Register today!

Until then, it is our hope that teachers and students can use the resources and activities below as a jumping off point to engage with experiences centered around the manufacturing technology classroom of the future.
