UP FRONTA LETTER FROM THE EDITOR u T


eresa Munger, 30, is an outstanding representative of a new generation of young STEM leaders. Most everybody reading this magazine knows that


STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. But Teresa is also very focused on Manufactur- ing, or what I like to call the other “M” in STEM. A senior manufacturing engineer at aerospace manufac-


turer Pratt & Whitney, Munger told ME that she enjoys “the hands-on elements of being able to work with machines and actually see a product come to life.” The profession of manufacturing really requires competency in all of the components of STEM, and in many ways, that’s what makes it such a challenging, intellectual venture. These days, educators, policymakers, parents and others are rightfully focused on improving STEM literacy in young people, But those of us in the business of bolstering manufacturing need to also be pushing for STEM2


capable professionals.


And that’s part of what makes our 30 Under 30 program so special. Now in its fourth year, our program honors young people “for demonstrating exceptional hard work, talent and

leadership in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Manufacturing.” We recently added “hard work” to our criteria above because we recognize that few of the young people who choose this path are relying on talent alone. One of our hon- orees this year, 22-year-old Jacob S. Larson, a machining engineer at John Deere, said people look at this work some- times as some sort of voodoo talent. But he knows the truth: “It just takes training and practice and time and education.” And with that, these young people can expect to have


long careers that pay them great family-supporting wages. We had more than 100 nominees for this year’s 30 Under 30


program—more than any prior year. And so a lot of wonderful young people made our list of honorees as well as honorable mentions. We honor all of them not just for being STEM leaders but for blazing the STEM2


trail, where stuff actually gets made.


Also in our July issue: Make sure to check out our feature ar- ticle on horizontal machining centers, the second in a series by Senior Editor James Lorincz, as well as our preview of IMTS 2016 by Executive Editor James Sawyer. See you at the show!
