Attend a Summer Manufacturing Camp

Summer camps are designed for students, ages 12-16, where they experience modern manufacturing by creating, building, and taking a product home. At camp, they tour manufacturing facilities, learn about entrepreneurship, and meet top industry experts. Campers will:

  • Experience a safe, hands-on learning environment.
  • Create products with Computer Aided Design (CAD).
  • Operate machinery under close supervision.
  • Discover their future career in manufacturing.
