Each year, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), through the SME Education Foundation, has the ability to influence the lives of young students by introducing them to the world of math, science, and engineering. Over the years, the Gateway Academies have grown and flourished under the direction of the Education Foundation and its partner, Project Lead the Way. When speaking of education and successful knowledge transfer, it is important to note that the current generation of engineers is seeking knowledge and improving their skill sets through SME's Certification program. It is important to remember that, while SME is a membership-based organization, its events and publications help the Society to fulfill its mission and goals. A notable success for the events area was the 2008 FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show, which was held in Las Vegas in early October.
