One of the enduring benefits of being a consultant over the years has been the opportunity to go on more than my fair share of plant tours. I love the chance to learn about all the ingenuity and creativity that goes into making stuff. If you can’t get to the actual plant tours, here’s one good alternative. Thanks to lifehack for the pointer.
The National Association of Manufacturing has been posting a weekly video for over two years that shows how things are made. This is a great way to learn new information while being entertained. Some of their past topics are linked below:
- How mattresses are made
- How breakfast cereal is made
- How neon signs are made
- How clocks are made
- How clarinets are made
- How Harley Davidson motorcycles are made
- How Mack trucks are made
- How baseball bats are made
- How golf clubs are made
- How tennis balls are made
- How parade balloons are made
The series has been going on for over two years which means there are well over 100 videos available.
