NBT Manufacturing Mini Camp (June 20)

The camp will be held Tuesday, June 20 and during the activity-packed day, participating 12-14 year-old students will be led through the full manufacturing process, from design to completion and will leave with a product they made with their own hands. They will:

  • experience the latest technologies in an advanced manufacturing workshop at one of the local colleges,
  • learn how to apply the STEM skills they’ve learned in school to real-life manufacturing tasks,
  • see how a product design becomes a CNC program,
  • and work with some of the tools of the trade,

. . . all under the careful supervision of several college instructors who have conducted week-long NBT manufacturing camps for many years. Lunch will be included and they will even get to view one of the SkillsUSA competition programs.

TECHSPO is the perfect location for an introductory manufacturing mini-camp

The students who participate in the SkillsUSA competition have already discovered their passion for a hands-on career and many of the participants have chosen manufacturing and welding.  The students competing in Louisville are the best in the nation having earned their way through local, regional and state competitions.  Employers actively recruit these students for their skills.  But younger students, even those with an interest in science, technology, engineering and math my not have had an opportunity to explore manufacturing and how they can utilize their STEM skills in a great career.  This one-day mini-camp is the chance to do just that. Local area students are welcome to register as are students from across the country who may be coming to the SkillsUSA program with an older sibling who is competing. Learn more about the SkillsUSA program and NBT here.

NBT thanks Haas Factory Outlets, Sullivan College of Design & Technology, Grainger and Solidworks for their support of this program.
