COVID-19 Update: We are proud to have provided a safe space for learning throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As many states begin lifting COVID-19 restrictions, we want to be clear that TRMA will not be eliminating any safety measures. Protecting the health and safety of our students, staff, and their families remains a top priority. We’ll continue monitoring guidance from the CDC as well as Illinois Department of Health.

TRMA/TREP Initiatives

TREP is working with TRMA to create a louder voice for local manufacturing.  Each October, in partnership with Joliet Junior College, TRMA’s MFG DAY opens the door and introduces area high school students to manufacturing. 

Dynamic speakers and high-energy manufacturing Jeopardy competitions have a place in the day.  However, the manufacturers’ display case is the centerpiece.  Not only does the display case demonstrates the science and technology–the core of manufacturing, it also allows the students to engage with great men and women of manufacturing.
