New York City is the center of the world for so many reasons, among the most prominent is its role as a leader in global commerce. Countless industries call The Big Apple “home,” while others have a substantial presence.
Among the most exciting trends over the past few years is the growth of manufacturing across a wide variety of industries in the city. The diversity in products made, from metalworks to food, has ignited makers and artisans alike. Many of these developments complement the rise of NYC’s tech industry, as found through our NYC Tech and Innovation Tours. The most prominent developments featured in this latest round of innovations can be found through food, infrastructure and fashion.
With the rise of these unique ventures all throughout the city, we’re happy to offer experiences for student groups to engage with the people powering the maker movement in New York City.
Check out three of our most popular NYC student group tours below:
- FOOD: A Bite of Tech – Go behind the scenes to explore how popular food products are produced and made
- INFRASTRUCTURE: Industry: Flashbacks to Tomorrow – Learn how a former industrial district is today’s center of innovation
- FASHION: Fashion Forward – Discover the process of how today’s designs become tomorrow’s must have items
Each program features a visit to a local makerspace or similar featured facility in addition to the specific tour theme to provide students with a complete understanding of the manufacturing & development process.
The overall goal is for students to leave with an appreciation for how different communities come together to create products and materials used everyday.
