Encouraging STEM Students Is in the National Interest - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Raising enrollment in science, technology, engineering, and math courses may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be.  This year a report issued by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, on which we serve, concluded that if the United States is to maintain its historic pre-eminence in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—and gain the social, economic, and national-security benefits that come with such pre-eminence, then we must produce approximately one million more workers in those fields over the next decade than we are on track now to turn out. At first glance, that may seem to be a daunting task—but it doesn't have to be......

Portrait: Maker's Row

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. "We were working so hard to get Brooklyn Bakery off the ground," co-founder Matthew Burnett said. "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.

Can reshoring really make a dent?

Can reshoring really make a dent? | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Positive signs continue to come in for the American manufacturer. The trend of reshoring—bringing back manufacturing that had been offshored to, say, China—appears to be more than a flash in the pan. As I’ve written before, more and more domestic companies are opening their eyes to the real costs of overseas manufacturing. While the price of a product might be somewhat cheaper to make in Shanghai, other costs have to be considered......
