Miller Electric Mfg. Co. of Appleton, WI is supporting 12
summer manufacturing camps in Wisconsin in 2018 with a
$10,000 donation to Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs (NBT), the
Foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association,
Int’l. Miller values NBT’s mission and demonstrates
its belief in supporting the manufacturing industry by
making it possible for NBT to provide camp grant funding.
The donation will support and allow approximately 200
students, aged 12-16, to be introduced to the manufacturing
process from design through production. The one- or
two-week long summer camps have been a successful
way of introducing middle- and high-school students
to the fascinating, high-tech career choices available to
them in today’s advanced manufacturing industry. Camps
allow students to make something with their own hands,
sparking their imagination and encouraging them to
consider a career in manufacturing. This summer, NBT
will support a record number of 90 camps across the U.S.
To be eligible for camp grant funding, schools must be
able to accommodate at least 12 students at their facility,
direct an entrepreneurship camp curriculum, introduce
manufacturing processes (i.e. metal fabricating, CNC,
machining, welding, etc.) and provide opportunities to tour
local manufacturing plants during the camp.
