Sustainability Starts With A Mindset > ENGINEERING.com | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Ask ten people “what does sustainability mean to you” and you’ll get ten different answers.  There will be common threads throughout the responses, likely the first things that come to mind like “green”, “renewable”, “LEED”, or “the capacity to endure”.  However, the deeper meaning of sustainability is likely to be missed unless one has been exposed to the building body of knowledge surrounding the theme of sustainability, or it’s close partner resiliency.  Sustainability starts with a mindset, one that begins with the end in mind.

Businesses To Educators: More STEM Grads Now

Businesses To Educators: More STEM Grads Now | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

New Hampshire News from nhpr

 

Higher Education officials and Business leaders gathered for a forum today on how to increase the number of New Hampshire STEM graduates – that’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. But while it was Community Colleges and Universities talking about the issue today, the lack of interest in STEM is a problem at every level of the American education system.

Tuesday's STEM forum featured appearances by Governor Lynch, and governor-elect Maggie Hassan. But the real meat of the event came from business owners and education reform experts who implored the higher-Ed community to do more to produce more talented science grads.

Portrait: Maker's Row | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Like so many startups, Maker's Row resulted from a big pivot. Unable to get a consumer e-commerce venture called Brooklyn Bakery to take off, its principals launched a portal to digitally connect American manufacturers and material suppliers to designers and brands in the U.S. after realizing the headaches involved in sourcing from China.

"Then we said, 'Hey, this is a huge problem with much more potential that we can tackle.’ " And since it made its debut in October, more than 4,000 U.S. businesses are using the site.
