Honda Welcomes High School Students

For the first time in two years, Honda is inviting high school students to in-person events at several of its facilities with the goal of promoting science, technology, engineering and math careers. 

The automaker kicked off National Manufacturing Day on Oct. 7 by hosting high school students and teachers in person at one factory, and will continue throughout the month of October to highlight modern manufacturing and the career opportunities available in the industry. 

The more than 1,000 students who attend the in-person events will meet with Honda associates and participate in hands-on activities that highlight different manufacturing areas and career paths.

Honda hosted the first of five events on Oct. 7 at its manufacturing plant in Alabama.

There will also be an event hosted by 99P Labs at The Ohio State University, with Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant, Auto Development Center, and Performance Manufacturing Center, on Oct. 21.



Manufacturing Day was developed by the National Association of Manufacturers to promote a positive perception of today's manufacturing careers.

The event can expose students to high-tech jobs and show them that “manufacturing can be a cool career," said Bob Schwyn, senior vice president at Honda development and manufacturing of America. 

Activities include a torque-tightening race, a design challenge and a  mini-wind tunnel experience.
