ITAC Advanced Manufacturing Summer Camp

Comments   |   Manufacturing Partners

Each summer, ITAC and its industry partners sponsor an Advanced
Manufacturing and Technology Camp as a new and exciting way to educate local
high school students about careers in manufacturing. The goal of this camp is
to expose high school students and their parents to these career paths that are
in extremely high demand in our area. Thanks to our sponsors and cooperation
with area schools, this camp is completely free to students and students have
the chance to win $500 scholarships to the post-secondary provider of their
choice! Since our first camp in 2013, over 150 area high schoolers have
participated, and $27,000 in scholarships have been awarded.

This year, the camp took place July 17 – 20 at ITAC and we had 25 area
students participate. During this camp, students gained lots of
first-hand/hands-on experience with current manufacturing processes and
technologies, they received valuable insight and advice from industry
professionals, and they participated in engaging and informative field trips to
area manufacturers (Fort Lee Ordinance Welding School and Rolls-Royce). 
Students spent the week working and learning in teams led by industry
professionals from area manufacturers. On the final day, the teams participated
in an exciting competition that put their acquired knowledge and skills to the
test. This year, our Red Team won the competition and each member of the Red
Team won a $500 scholarship to the post-secondary provider of their choice!
