PACK Challenge

PACK Challenge


As PMMI continues to work with industry leaders to build the pipeline of skilled future employees in the packaging industry, the PACK Challenge aims to promote and inspire students to learn more about the packaging sector.

PACK Challenge is a real-world, end-to-end competition at PACK EXPO International that requires collaboration, creativity, conception, process, design, build, programming, debug, marketing and field installation knowledge – all put to the test in a competition format!

“The PACK Challenge was an amazing opportunity that I’m very appreciative to have participated in. It was a great opportunity to learn how to work with real life machinery and apply engineering skills to solve a real-world problem.

I’m very thankful to PMMI and the sponsoring companies of this event for putting so much time, effort, and funding into this competition. We were able to learn about this extraordinary industry and participate in something that will help prepare us for the future.”
