This is their second year supporting the statewide tour.

Minnesota Precision Manufacturing Association provided a $5,000 sponsorship to support travel costs for schools and promoting the statewide tour. They have supported the statewide tour since 2012.

The Manufacturing Institute awarded Dream It. Do It. Minnesota a $5,000 microgrant to support the tour. These funds were available through a generous grant from the Toyota USA Foundation.

“We appreciate the support from Pro Staff and Ware Technology Services, Minnesota Precision Manufacturing Association and the Manufacturing Institute to support the statewide tour. Through this statewide event, we are able to reach students, families and community members to highlight advanced manufacturing in their home towns,” states Jaimee Meyer, executive director of Dream It.
