Additional Information

The Explore Advanced Manufacturing Camp introduces students to the industry by allowing them to manufacture a project that includes hands-on experience in designing, precision machining, welding, and wiring an electrical circuit. Students will also learn basic entrepreneurial concepts and skills while connecting with experienced manufacturers. The camp features guest speakers from local industry leaders and tours of Springfield area manufacturing sites. Because students will be working with real machinery, it is important for them to follow safety guidelines and wear protective clothing during the camp.
