Take a Virtual Field Trip with Sandvik at IMTS


Developed by educators and manufacturing industry experts, “Technology Applied” is a virtual field trip that connects academic courses to development of important products. The interactive web broadcast, from IMTS September 8th-13th in Chicago, will show students why math and science matters, and how the courses they take today can be applied in productive and rewarding future careers.

This 30-minute virtual field trip runs in three different episodes on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday during IMTS-week, offering diverse aspects of the trade show experience to teachers and their classrooms. Students will get to explore some of the most groundbreaking and fascinating areas of today’s — and tomorrow’s — applied technology. Topics include 3-D additive printing for aerospace manufacturing, helicopter engineering, and race car technology.

According to JoAnn Mitchell, senior project leader of Sandvik Coromant, “Students can experience how manufacturing plays a key role in their everyday lives and see the possibilities it can offer. People can have a career in manufacturing that literally makes a difference in how we live.”

The broadcast is appropriate for students in grades 5-12, college, and tech school. The field trip is organized by Sandvik Coromant and supported by the AMT, Haas, Fanuc, DMG Mori Seiki, Okuma, Hurco, Doosan, Mastercam, Koma Precision and Gardner Media.
