Eaton Young Manufacturers Academy
This year’s Summer Eaton Young Manufacturers Academy was inspired by the vision of Eaton and the Eaton Charitable Organization: To improve the quality of life and the environment, and to support our local community. Often when students are interested in science or math and are also interested in helping people, they tend to turn to medicine. We wanted to show students how manufacturing helps people and how area manufacturers are focused on supporting and improving our local community.

What an awesome week! This summer’s Eaton YMA was a great success with over thirty children working with area teachers, interns, and area manufacturers to learn about local career opportunities in advanced manufacturing. Technology and electronics were the focus this summer as well as a surprise visit from the New York Secretary of State Rossana Rosado. Thank you again to Eaton CPSD in Olean, NY. Please read more about this year’s Eaton YMA.
The second annual Eaton Young Manufacturers Academy and fourth annual Sledding Snow Down were held once again at MTI@JCC in February, 2018. Due to unseasonable weather conditions (no snow in February!), thirty two future manufacturers worked with engineers, scientists and area teachers to learn about robotics, electronics, coding, scientific method, trouble shooting, drafting, and….created a car with an exciting race on the final day. An overview and survey results is attached.
Eric Swartwout of Eaton CPSD recently presented a $10,000 contribution to members of the DIDI Cattaraugus Executive Board in support of the Eaton Young Manufacturers Academy, coordinated by Dream It Do It in cooperation with Jamestown Community College in Olean. The Eaton Young Manufacturers Academy will be held during the week of February 19th at MTI@JCC. Students will be meeting with area engineers and participating in hands-on experiences involving robotics, engineering design, the scientific method, the 5 Whys, trouble shooting and more. Eaton’s Young Manufacturers Academy is open to area students between the ages of 9-14.
Should be even more exciting than last year!
