Our youth, the workforce of tomorrow, must have the opportunity to explore and engage in STEM education. One thing we know for certain about this current generation is that they learn and work differently than generations before, therefore Michelin supports multiple STEM initiatives across the state such as the Upstate STEM Collaborative and iMAGINE Upstate. The festival combines STEM education with hands-on experiences for students to see first-hand how dynamic a career in advanced manufacturing can be.

As an exhibitor at the iMAGINE Upstate Festival, AFL offers children across the area a unique opportunity to learn about fiber optics – something that is more behind the scenes than is seen in everyday life. We are engaging students and parents by demonstrating the science behind how light works, how light flows through glass fiber and “communicates” – breaking down complex ideas to make them accessible to young learners. We hope we are stirring their imaginations and showcasing how fun STEM is and can be! iMAGINE Upstate provides exposure for students to discover how STEM-related activities translate to manufacturing jobs in the Upstate. We hope this excites them to pursue studies and careers in STEM!
