H/Mack Trucks Manufacturing School

Mack Trucks Manufacturing School

Real tools. Real parts. Real technicians and engineers from Mack Trucks.

The Da Vinci Science Center and Mack Trucks have teamed up to offer a Science Club all about manufacturing and engineering! Work alongside Da Vinci educators and real technicians and engineers from Mack Trucks to learn all about what it takes to make the biggest rigs on the road. Together, we’ll practice working with real tools, experiment with electricity, and tinker with a real dashboard straight off the production line! Tuition covers eight total sessions, including seven at the Da Vinci Science Center, plus an exclusive private tour of the Mack Museum in Allentown. 

Registration is closed.
