The ACM’s Aerospace Alley® Future Workforce Opportunities Fair will be held on Thursday, October 31, 2024 in Hartford, CT. This event is designed to engage students at the middle and high school levels and raise awareness about modern manufacturing and the aerospace industry.

The goal is to make students – along with their teachers, counselors, parents, and communities – aware of the broad opportunities and well-paying careers in the local aerospace industry. Those attending will have the opportunity to speak with local aerospace firms to learn about the valuable career opportunities that exist and discuss the expectations employers have when hiring. Attendees see first-hand leading-edge manufacturing technologies used across Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.

Over 1,200 students and educators attended last year’s fair. Teachers have commented this is their best class field trip of the entire school year!

There is no cost for schools to participate. ACM will also provide parking free for school buses at the Connecticut Convention Center.
