Manufacturing Day Pittsburg

* In 2017, the Pittsburg Chamber rejuvenated Manufacturing Day events with the City of Pittsburg.  We were excited to have 30 Pittsburg students participated in the event coordinated by the Chamber, City, and PUSD.  Since then, the event has doubled in participation.  

​* In 2018, Contra Costa County Office of Education (now Earn and Learn) was added as a valued partner. With their amazing work over 60 Pittsburg students participated in the event on October 5th – part of 250 students county wide. In addition to tours, the students will preview key educational opportunities at Los Medanos College that would funnel them through a path resulting in manufacturing careers. The Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce is proud to play a role in such an important event, and we will continue to work diligently to connect our Pittsburg companies to tomorrow’s manufacturers!  Manufacturing Day 2018, in conjunction with and thanks to our partners, offered Manufacturing Day tours to area high schools including John Swett, San Ramon, Antioch, Mt. Diablo, Clayton, and Concord High.  

* In 2019, over 120 students, of that half being from Pittsburg, toured our local manufacturers, as well as Fresenius and Lennar in Concord – thereby expanding Pittsburg student’s exposure to manufacturing.  Our Manufacturing Day events are thriving.  

Special thanks to our partners – 

2020 Manufacturing Month made possible by a generous grant from Corteva Community Advisory Panel.

Special Announcement from Leading Manufacturer Bishop-Wisecarver – 

Ygnacio Valley High School Student Wins the Inaugural Wisecarver Innovation Award from Bishop-Wisecarver 
Award Given to Student with the Most Innovative Design for Making Virtual Learning Easier 

​PITTSBURG, Calif., December 15, 2020 Bishop-Wisecarver, a trusted industrial automation company offering proven mechatronic solutions that are expertly designed and delivered to perform, today announced that Ramzi Latreche from Ygnacio Valley High School has won its first-ever Wisecarver Innovation Award. Through this student design contest, Bishop-Wisecarver challenged students in primary or secondary accredited educational facilities in their community to develop a design that could make their virtual learning experience due to COVID-19 easier. Latreche’s winning design proposed an innovative way of using vibrations in a pillow to consistently get a good night’s sleep in order to perform better in an online learning environment. ​​Kicked off as part of Bishop-Wisecarver’s Virtual 2020 MFG Day event, this award is yet another example of Bishop-Wisecarver’s corporate commitment to support and promote programs that provide real-world learning experiences to help students succeed today, and well into their futures. The company is also a long-time supporter of FIRST, a program that inspires young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators with well-rounded life capabilities including self-reliance, communication and leadership. Ygnacio Valley High School is an avid participant in this program with its Project 212 (FIRST Team 7137), which is also sponsored by Bishop-Wisecarver.[3][4][5]


“Providing real-world experience for today’s youth can provide the basis for their success not only in academia, but also in their life-long careers,” said Joseph Alvarico, Engineering Pathway teacher and FIRST Robotics coach, Ygnacio Valley High School. “As one of the FIRST Robotics instructors, I have seen first-hand the significant difference a company such as Bishop-Wisecarver can make with these types of programs and sponsorships. As a Title I school, we rely on these commitments and partnerships  to unleash a watershed of opportunities for our students,  and the companies in the community who will one day employ them.”“I enjoyed using skills learned in my engineering classes to think creatively and scientifically about an invention that could help all students be more successful with the online classroom learning environment,“ said Ramzi Latreche, Senior at Ygnacio Valley High School and winner of the first Wisecarver Innovation Award.  “My submission focused on the importance of sleep to help us stay more alert and engaged so we can continue learning at our highest level. I’m glad the Bishop-Wisecarver judges saw the value in the concept and selected me as the design contest winner.”

About the Innovation Design Contest
The Wisecarver Innovation Award asked students “What would you design to make your learning experience easier?” These designs could include anything for their workstation, bedroom, desk, kitchen table, or something else to help them manage their experience. The goal was to design something that would enable them to make it easier to learn outside of the physical school building. Participants responded by providing a 60-second video that included an overview of their idea, how it helps and any drawings, prototypes or concept designs that could help provide additional explanation.  [6]

The three key areas used to determine the winner included the following: 

  1. Innovation — How does this idea represent an important tool to help learn virtually? 
  2. Thinking outside the box — Originality of idea 
  3. Broad appeal — Will a large number of students find it useful? 

“Bishop-Wisecarver has always been strongly committed to giving back to our community by embracing and supporting programs that help all students learn and succeed,” said Pamela Kan, Bishop-Wisecarver President. “The design ideas generated from this contest were outstanding and clearly demonstrate the sheer talent and motivation of our diverse youth who will rise up one day and lead our companies and our world. Sometimes all they need is an opportunity and we are proud to be able to give that to so many students.”About Bishop-Wisecarver
