Washington State University-Vancouver will host the Saturday Academy manufacturing summer camp workshop. The week-long manufacturing camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, July 27-31., but the camp is already full.
Students entering grades eight through 12 will explore manufacturing and mechanical engineering. At the camp "Mechanical Engineering: Metal Fabrication," students will design, fabricate, and test a Stirling engine while learning metal fabrication techniques working with WSU Vancouver instructor Dave Kim.
Students will explore the world of manufacturing and mechanical engineering, working with state-of-the-art research labs and professional manufacturers in the community.
Funding came from a $5,000 grant from Nuts, Bolts and Thingamajigs (founded by actor John Ratzenberger), the Foundation of the Fabricators and the Manufacturers Association International.
Academy information is available at http://www.saturdayacademy.org.
