femal works with medal drill Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) is offering an opportunity for high school students, as well as teachers and counselors, from Warren, Barren, Allen, and Simpson Counties to get an in-depth, hands-on, exploration of Careers in Advance Manufacturing (CAM) at one of two summer sessions.

SKY CAM is a dynamic summer camp focused on Careers in Advanced Manufacturing (CAM). The camp is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded grant project hosted by Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) that offers activities designed to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)/Advanced Manufacturing (AM) careers to high school students and their career influencers: parents, teachers, and counselors.

Each day of the camp, participants will be able to take part in hands-on activities such as programing robots, complete an arc welding project, and write programs for PLC s. The lunch sessions each day will feature speakers from area industries, and after lunch the participants will be able to tour local industries and observe demonstrations such as how automation technicians use robots to assemble a Corvette and how bridges are assembled at STUPP Bridge. femal holds medal part as other teachers look on
