Students are invited to discover the exciting possibilities in the packaging and processing industry by participating in the Amazing Packaging Race sponsored by Emerson. In this fun and educational event, teams of university students from across the U.S. race around the show floor to complete tasks at the booths of participating exhibitors.
New this year PMMI is hosting a “virtual” component of the race. For students unable to attend the show, but interested in engaging with industry, PMMI will provide a scavenger hunt list including questions from participating exhibitors encouraging students to learn more about the industry.
High school students from across the country showcase their robots on the trade show floor. Teams will be able to display their troubleshooting and ‘bot skills for a half day during PACK EXPO Las Vegas. Thanks to the support from Rockwell Automation all participating teams will be given free access to the show floor, complimentary lunch on the day of their showcase and a $500 donation to the robotics team competition year.
PMMI wants to help PMMI member companies bring their local team to PACK EXPO to showcase their design and experience the packaging industry. PMMI will match member contributions to assist their teams to attend PACK EXPO.
