“The camps demonstrate to students that making stuff is cool and that the words ‘American made’ convey not only a sense of pride but an opportunity for a rewarding career in a clean, mentally challenging environment.” The Engineering/Advanced Manufacturing Camp for high school girls will explore the high-tech and high-wage careers available in advanced manufacturing. Participants will rotate through hands-on activities as they work in teams to solve problems and learn the fundamentals of lean manufacturing. They will also take a tour of the Bosch Automotive Steering plant to see a high-tech facility up close.

“Today’s advanced manufacturing and logistics careers pay well, offer good benefits and provide a reliable source of income to both women and men,” Michelle Flick, Workforce Transitions Coordinator, said. “Local manufacturers are hiring now and for the foreseeable future. We’re pleased to support these efforts to introduce young people to the advantages of manufacturing and logistics careers.” Both camps are FREE and will take place at Boone Campus, 500 Technology Way, Florence.
