Introduction


Shipbuilding Repair and Maritime Career Day (SBRCD) 2013 is organized by the Lean Institute at ODU and the International Society of Agile Manufacturing (ISAM). During the year 2011 and 2012, SBRCD was supported by the Marine Career Tech (McTech) project funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to improve the future workforce in shipbuilding and maritime industry. In addition, the event is sponsored by the local shipbuilding, repair and maritime industry.


Shipbuilding Repair and Maritime Career Day Event is held at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in the month of March. About 1,000 students and 100 teachers from different schools in Hampton Roads area participate in this daylong event. Recently Maritime industry component has been added to this event. The event offers an educational and fun-filled environment for middle and high school students to learn about various career pathways and opportunities in shipbuilding, repair and maritime industries.

This event has become an annual tradition in Hampton roads after the first SBRCD was organized in 2008 with support from the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP).
