Intrepid Automation, a company that provider of next-generation industrial manufacturing solutions, has entered into a new partnership with Greater Than Tech (GTT), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focusing on immersing girls and underserved youth to STEM and business, to offer a free 4-day summer camp at the University of San Diego. The summer camp is also supported by Collins Aerospace.
The “Girl Meets Additive Manufacturing” program, open to San Diego high school students, will introduce participants to additive manufacturing methods, 3D print technology, and engineering basics for industrial manufacturing.
“We’re looking forward to seeing what the students present, and hoping to spark interest in manufacturing as a career,” said Maddi Stadtmueller, senior chemical applications engineer at Intrepid Automation.
“Near and dear to my heart is being intentional with opportunities to open doors to young women of color to STEM and entrepreneurship,” said Stan Kottke, vice president and general manager of Aerostructures for Collins Aerospace. “Collins Aerospace looks forward to continuing to create pathways such as this one to introduce and develop our future workforce.”
Girls will learn computer aided design basics, create and test 3D printed parts, and showcase their designs on August 19, the final day of camp. More information on the program can be found here.
