That's wonderful! It's great to start thinking about your career at a younger age! However, you won't get to take classes related to manufacturing until college. Or, if you don't think you will go to college, you could get an internship in or after high school. If you want to learn more, I would start out by finding some books on manufacturing and reading about it. Or, you could simply google search articles about becoming a manufacturer. I also agree with Peter, it would be a good idea to find some Youtube videos to watch on manufacturing. Good luck!

Peter’s Answer

Most high schools today don't have the carpentry or mechanics shops of high schools in the past. The high school classes that will help you most will be math through some Trigonometry, and Physics.

Find some folks who are in a manufacturing related union, e.g., welding, electrical, etc, and talk to them. Even better if you could get a job at a manufacturing facility even if it's something menial; just being around the place and talking to the folks there you'd learn a lot.

Start building stuff now. With YouTube, you could learn lots of manufacturing basics and start 'messing around in your garage.'
