Thanks to the Science Channel's "How It's Made" TV show, my 4 year old son is completely obsessed with manufacturing assembly lines, conveyors belts, robotic tools, etc.
When I was a kid, the bottle processing lines and fermentation tanks (and free draft root beer) at the F.X. Matt Brewery tours in Utica always filled the bill, but I'm at a loss of similar places to watch manufacturinig lines in action in the Capital District. My wife took him to the Town of Colonie landfill to watch the large pickers grab and crush household and construction debris, but my boy is particular in his tastes and wasn't impressed.
Anyone have ideas about where Terry and his son might be able to check out some cool manufacturing or construction action?
This stuff is fun even if you're not a four year old. AOA got a tour of the Bilinski's sausage factory in Cohoes (which, alas, is not open to the public) last year and it was really interesting.
