Blue Ridge Community College, in partnership with the University of Virginia, is offering high school students the opportunity to explore careers in Advanced Manufacturing. Students may attend an in-person, FREE($590 tuition paid by NSF), 5-day summer camp to be introduced to the fundamentals of manufacturing (i.e. Supply and Demand, Rate of Return, Electricity, Hydraulics, Pneumatics). Students will also have the opportunity to take three courses, free of charge, through funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). These courses could translate into a manufacturing certificate or college credit.
Any 9th-12th grade high school student with STEM interests are encouraged to apply. Students should have a strong understanding of basic math skills and be able to think critically
