A few weeks ago the Walt Whitman Robotics team joined nearly a dozen STEM programs at the Regional Manufacturing Institute 2016 Gala. The May 26 Gala looked to the Future of Maryland Manufacturing and brought over 75 students together to demonstrate robotics, drones, 3D printing, coding and STEM projects, and to meet manufacturers. The Gala also connected manufacturers from across Maryland to celebrate what they do, and remind the media and our policy markers why manufacturing is critical to Maryland’s future economic competitiveness. Other speakers at the Gala included:
Calvin G. Butler Jr., CEO, BGE
Anirban Basu, President, Sage Policy Group
Demian Costa, Managing Partner, Sagamore Ventures
Honoree: Drew Greenblatt, President Marlin Steel Wire Products
Thanks to RMI for inviting us to attend.
