-  Alcoa Foundation and Discovery Education will host the Manufacture Your Future LIVE Virtual Field Trip to celebrate National Manufacturing Day on October 3, 2014 for classrooms all across the nation. The virtual field trip will be hosted from an Alcoa facility as part of Alcoa Foundation and Discovery Education’s overall “Manufacture Your Future” program, which provides middle and high school students with an inside look at careers in advanced manufacturing.

The Manufacture Your Future LIVE Virtual Field Trip will take place at a high-tech aluminum manufacturing facility, which has produced metal for every American space vehicle, making many milestones possible including the first moon landing. In addition, students will have the exclusive opportunity to tour Alcoa’s Davenport facility where they will witness how products for major aircrafts are manufactured, including the wings of Air Force One. The tour will also showcase the company’s new revolutionary Auto Treatment Line, which enables mass production of aluminum for cars.

“According to The Manufacturing Institute, more than one in seven U.S. private sector jobs depend on the U.S. manufacturing base,” said Esra Ozer, President, Alcoa Foundation. “We are thrilled to introduce members of the Alcoa Davenport team, including a Metallurgical Engineer, Electrical Engineer and Process Specialist, who will each provide their unique perspective on their careers and help inspire tomorrow’s workforce.”
