Two camps offered
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (June 10, 2016) — Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) is offering an opportunity for high school students, as well as teachers and counselors, from Warren, Barren, Allen, and Simpson Counties to get an in-depth, hands-on, exploration of Careers in Advance Manufacturing (CAM) at one of two summer sessions.
The SKY CAM camp is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded grant project that offers activities designed to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)/Advanced Manufacturing (AM) careers to high school students and their career influencers: parents, teachers, and counselors.
Camp participants will be able to take part in hands-on activities such as programing robots, complete an arc welding project, and write programs for PLC’s. Lunch sessions each day will feature speakers from area industries, and after lunch the participants will be able to tour local industries and observe demonstrations such as how automation technicians use robots to assemble a Corvette and how bridges are assembled at STUPP Bridge.
Camps are from June 13-17 and June 20-24. Camps meet Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Each camp will be limited to 40 participants.
