This camp will provide students the opportunity to machine their own creation by making a replica of a parrot rifle cannon. Middle school students will use real-life CNC and mechanical machining equipment to build the components just like they will find in advanced manufacturing! Learn about the CVCC Machine Quality and Tool program, cool careers available to machinist, and tour a local machine shop.
Students should not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before the start of camp to allow proper set-up time for the instructor. Electronic devices will not be permitted in the classroom. Cell phones are permitted during breaks and/or end of class. Students may bring a snack and/or beverage to camp. For safety reasons, we ask all camp participants to wear tennis shoes or closed toe shoes.
