The Virtual, Hands-On! 2021 Design to Production Camp for Youth at the Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) will deliver a fresh and encompassing approach to making through problem-solving that highlights today’s real world and digital industry practices. The RCBI camp will feature an overview of today’s manufacturing and current processes used by professionals – from identifying a problem or fresh design from concept through modeling, rapid prototyping, troubleshooting and modification to machining or 3D printing a final version. Campers will create custom 3D printed and laser-cut projects with first-person use of software and hardware, a tour of a manufacturing facility, and interaction with industry experts and entrepreneurs. The RCBI camp was developed for boys and girls age 9 through 16 and will be delivered virtually, campers will receive their projects, tee shirt, certificate, and more via mail immediately following close of camp. Though Bridgeport-area-specific educational and career resources will be featured, campers from across the region are encouraged to join according to availability.
