Get Ready, Get Set…PACK!
I think packaging is one of those industries that flies under the radar of many students, simply because they don’t know about it. There are a lot of good paying jobs in packaging and manufacturing that need qualified candidates – and PMMI, the industry group that hosts PACK EXPO, has developed a really engaging way to get college students interested in those jobs: The Amazing Packaging Race.
Now in its eighth year at PACK EXPO, the Amazing Packaging Race has teams of college students racing around the show floor, competing to solve engineering problems at the booths of participating exhibitors.
All students enrolled in a packaging curriculum through one of 51 PMMI partner schools are eligible to participate.
Right now, 51 PMMI partner schools offer a packaging curriculum, and around a dozen of those schools will be participating this year on the last day of PACK EXPO 2017, happening September 25-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
