Sinclair College


Through a consortium of higher education institutions, Sinclair College is working to address the need for a more highly skilled workforce; one that is adaptive, technical, and that has automation-era skillsets. The FlexFactor program, by NextFlex, is the collaborative technology and entrepreneurship program, funded by the Department of Defense, that will allow youth to discover the value of a career in advanced manufacturing.

A 5-8 week program that immerses high school students in the world of advanced manufacturing and encourages them to consider a career in STEM!

FlexFactor is a guided curriculum that can be embedded into any academic classroom, with support provided by a FlexFactor Project Manager and industry partners.

Sinclair Regional FlexFactor Finals

Friday, April 29, 2022 - 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

The Science, Mathematics & Engineering Division at Sinclair invites you to attend the Regional FlexFactor Finals. FlexFactor students this year worked in teams to identify a major world problem, conceptualized a product to address the problem, built a business model and then pitched their product ideas to a panel of education and industry experts.  The Regional Finals includes the best teams from the area’s participating high schools. 

Join us to witness how FlexFactor is increasing student critical thinking, creativity and collaboration while informing students about career pathways in STEM and Advanced Manufacturing.
