Bridgerland Technical College’s Electronic Engineering Technology and Automated Manufacturing Programs, in partnership with Nuts, Bolts, & Thingamajigs (NBT), hosted a week-long Summer Manufacturing Camp for kids ages 12 – 16. NBT is the non-profit foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl. (FMA), which awards grants to schools capable of hosting the camps.
The camps serve as a catalyst for solving the skilled labor shortage by introducing kids to the high-tech career options available in the manufacturing industry. Attendees of Bridgerland Technical College’s Summer Manufacturing Camp explored several fascinating areas of technology, including:
- Circuits / Wiring
- Laser Cutting
- CAD & design
Campers were engaged all week with hands-on activities, tours, and guest speakers.
