Mid-State has added a second session for its popular Summer Manufacturing Camp.
Designed for students entering 9th or 10th grade, the second session was created following the popularity of its first camp in June.
The Summer Manufacturing Camp lets students explore materials, develop skills, utilize tools and technology, and discover a career in today’s manufacturing. The camp runs Monday through Thursday, Aug. 5–8, 2019, on Mid-State’s Marshfield Campus at 2600 West 5th St., and costs $59 per student.
The camp begins daily at 9 a.m. and concludes at 4:30 p.m., with drop-off and pre-camp activities available between 7:30 and 9 a.m. Lunch and snacks are included each day.
The final day of camp, Aug. 8, will include bus tours of regional manufacturing facilities as well as a showcase highlighting items the students created throughout the week.
Attendees will explore hands-on skills common to several manufacturing trades and processes through state-of-the-art facilities and the entrepreneurial concepts and skills needed in the industry.
Students will use computer-aided design (CAD) and 3-D printing software to design a product and produce their products using a variety of techniques and equipment used in manufacturing careers. They will also interact with team members, local manufacturing business leaders and entrepreneurs to increase their understanding of the modern manufacturing environment.
