Young Manufacturers Academy
CTDIDI’s nationally-recognized Young Manufacturers Academy (YMA) fosters a positive image of manufacturing through experiential learning, promotes achievement in STEM, and develops an awareness of future career possibilities among middle grade youth. YMA includes hands-on activities, simulation-based learning, virtual machining environments, travel to industry locations for on-site interaction with manufacturers and a mock career fair.
YMA is run by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. in partnership with the Connecticut Technical High School System and is funded through the Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development’s Manufacturing Innovation Fund. Funding for the Hartford area provided through the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and funding for the Groton, New London, Bridgeport, New Haven area provided through the Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority.
