asbe Foundation, in conjunction with the Design and Manufacturing Alliance, arranges industrial and historical tours for High School and College Students.
Special tours are arranged for instructors and educational decision makers. We identify host companies, serve as a tour liaison, and develop tour guides to maximize the educational value of each tour. Three of our educational Tour sites may appear non-traditional but have an important story to tell. The GM Heritage Center, The Ford Piquette Plant, and the Stahl Museum are three popular venues that students often tour. These tours enable student to see how automobiles have developed over time as improved materials, design and engineering have enabled their evolution.
Additional tours are being negotiated and instructors will be notified as they become available through the intermediate school districts and college deans. For questions or further information about student/instructor tours, please contact:
