Manufacturing Experience 2022, a free day camp for young Noble County residents in grades six through eight, will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. October 29 at the Community Learning Center, 401 E. Diamond St., Kendallville.
The camp will include hands-on experiences highlighting 21st century technologies, including robotics, programming and circuitry.
A free lunch will be provided.
Camp sponsors and organizers include Northeast Indiana Works, the Don Wood Foundation, Be Noble Inc., Freedom Academy, Impact Institute and the iSmart Lab at the learning center.
The camp is part of a larger manufacturing awareness campaign that will be launched soon by Northeast Indiana Works.
Manufacturing is the largest employing industry in northeast Indiana and will need workers skilled in the latest technologies throughout the next decade and beyond.
“This is an exciting opportunity for young people to get a taste of what modern-day manufacturing is all about,” said Rick Farrant, director of communications for Northeast Indiana Works. “For young people who are fascinated about how things are made, this camp may be the start of planning a great career.”
