Tremendous opportunities are available in the field of manufacturing and fabrication. This two-week boot camp will focus more on the details of how to do certain manufacturing processes. We will discuss different machines and how they specifically make every-day items. We will also cover some very interesting projects that are happening locally and some exciting ones that the instructor has personally done. These include machining the wheels for Mars Perseverance Rover that launched off the summer of 2019, missile launch tubes for the Navy, cutoff valves that will prevent the next BP oil spill, mortar barrels for the Army, containment cylinders for nuclear disposal, Caterpillar dump truck parts, thrust nozzles for rocket ships and more. You’ll hear directly from local manufacturing company owners and how they started their businesses, applying basic entrepreneurship principles to understand how a single product idea becomes a business.
