Students invited to engineering, manufacturing camp
The deadline to sign up in June 30.
Area students in sixth through 12th grades are invited to attend Central Lakes College’s annual Summer Engineering and Manufacturing Camp from July 5-9 at the college's Staples campus.
The camp runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, with lunch provided each day. Transportation is available from the Brainerd campus.
The camp gives students an opportunity to experience hands-on electronics, motor controllers, computer aided drafting, manufacturing machining and robotics automated systems. Students build “battlebots,” all while gaining expert instruction in computer-aided drafting and robotics automated systems. At the end of the week, students will compete in a battlebot competition, including an obstacle course, robot hockey and the battlebot demolition. Awards will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place teams.
The camp fee is $200, and limited partial scholarships are available. Sign up by June 30 by contacting Jill at email@example.com or 218-894-5138.
