The Manufacturing Innovation, Technology & Job Center
Inspired by the Blueprint for Manufacturing
The vision set forward byThe Blueprint for Manufacturing in Northeast Ohio inspires all of MAGNET's work, including the design, purpose and opportunity our new building affords the region. The Blueprint identifies four pillars, each of which drives all our efforts: Talent, Innovation, Transformation and Leadership. The design and development of our new headquarters, The Manufacturing Innovation, Technology & Job Center, was no different.
The future of manufacturing starts here. The future of manufacturing starts now.

Our In-Building Partners
Cleveland Water Alliance
A non-profit organization that seeks to better utilize the economic and job-creating potential of Lake Erie while also urging greater care of our valuable, natural asset
A diverse coalition for science, technology, engineering, math and computational science, an ecosystem that inspires engagement and coordination in STEM+C fields and expands equitable access to high quality education for all.
In our pursuit of a more fair, just and good system of education, we want each of our learners, scholars and their educators to be individually and collectively presented with academically/intellectually complex tasks worthy of their productive struggle and allow them authentic opportunities to demonstrate their work and their learning of academic content and transferable skills in a joyful and adventurous environment.
We cultivate creative, innovative, critical thinkers for the 21st century; support a learning culture that encourages curiosity and experimentation; and help people learn STEM by doing STEM, because we believe it is best learned through real scientific challenges.
