August 12, 2022
Intrepid Automation, provider of industrial manufacturing solutions, set up a new partnership with Greater Than Tech (GTT), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on introducing young girls and underserved youth to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and business, to offer a free 4-day summer camp at the University of San Diego.
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,” says 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,” says 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 were enabled to learn computer-aided design basics, create and test 3D printed parts, and showcase their designs in August 2022 during the camp. For more information on the program, click here.
