"I originally became engaged with the American Precision Museum just over 6 years ago. Approximately 3 years ago I was asked to join the board, and since then have assisted in forming a dedicated education committee. I am so excited to chair our education committee, working with some of the greatest workforce development leaders in our industry. We are poised to make amazing things happen not just in New England, but beyond. We have some of the most innovative leaders in our space joining forces on our committee to create dynamic learning opportunities that highlight the history of manufacturing, the ingenuity of our early entrepreneurs and link that to timely STEM topics for students, all while interweaving the amazing prosperous career pathways in manufacturing. We are truly poised to make magic happen moving forward, and cannot wait to join forces with more companies committed to inspiring the workforce of tomorrow."

"Gracious, informative, and enjoyable.... We were last at the museum over 20 years ago when it was already impressive to manufacturing history fans like us, but you have made it relevant to a far broader, younger, and diversified audience."

"I took my class here 'virtually' on a field trip. It was so cool to share the birth of modern manufacturing with my students. It's a fascinating place for anyone interested in making things."

"The American Precision Museum is not (just) for Gear-Heads. ...I'm not a machinist, but wish every family could visit this, one of the few demonstrations of the underpinnings of the prosperity manufacturing created."
