Participants learned about team building and manufacturing processes by completing a series of hands-on modules designed to teach concepts and processes through experiential learning.
Students learned to apply Lean manufacturing skills to improve “production output” while reducing waste and standardizing operations.
This year, the theme was “FANatics for Innovation,” so teams of participating students designed and built two different types of fans using STIHL components.
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.
