Da Vinci Science Center is a founding member of the Dream It. Do It. PA partnership directed by Manufacturers Resource Center in Allentown, Pa.
The Dream It. Do It. PA partnership is dedicated to changing perceptions and attitudes in the Keystone State about advanced manufacturing careers. Dream It. Do It. PA started in 2013 as an effort called Lehigh Valley Skill Up to raise awareness in the Lehigh Valley area. The popularity of the partnership’s flagship student video contests and its rights to the national Dream It. Do It. brand for Pennsylvania have enabled it to expand its reach throughout the commonwealth.
Dream It. Do It. PA provides resources for Pennsylvania’s students, parents, educators, and manufacturers on the web at dreamitdoitpa.com; coordinates activities for students and educators in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley region; produces the annual Dream It. Do It. PA Lehigh Valley Student Video Contest; and supports efforts of coalitions from other Pennsylvania regions to host video contests and promote advanced manufacturing careers. The Da Vinci Science Center provides publicity and digital media support for the partnership and all regional student video contests.
The Dream It. Do It. PA partnership evolved from a special Lehigh Valley Manufacturing Summit held in Aug. 2011 by the Da Vinci Science Center.
