The third annual Girl Scouts Manufacturing Day was recently held at the H-DMC Pilgrim Road Powertrain Operations facility. The event helped 36 Girl Scouts earn their Product Design Badges and learn what it takes to turn a sketch into a motorcycle.
The girls experienced the unique opportunity to take a factory tour and learn about powertrains. Afterward, they were given the challenge of replicating the assembly line themselves, working as material handlers, sub-assemblers and vehicle assemblers to construct Lego motorcycles.
By the end of the day, the girls got a feel for the teamwork, creativity, and high level of engineering that goes into designing a world-class product.
Outreach events such as this one are a demonstration of the Motor Company’s work to support diversity and inclusion, promote careers in manufacturing, and build the next generation of riders!
