This is the third year of AWT’s Summer Manufacturing Institute (SMI) and we need your help!
The SMI provides two weeklong
camps with different manufacturing themes to expose students in 5th
or 6th grade to manufacturing in Lake and Geauga counties. During the week, students learn about
manufacturing through field trips, projects and speakers. By providing students
information regarding manufacturing at a young age, the hope is more students
will think of manufacturing as a viable career path as he/she gets older.
It is the goal of AWT to make
sure all students have the opportunity to participate in the SMI and learn
about manufacturing in the Lake and Geauga communities. Each attendee pays a nominal fee ($150) to
attend camp and offset costs like materials, food and busing. However, local organizations have invested in
the camp by providing scholarships to low-income students so cost is not a
As the camp has grown in popularity, so have the costs. We are reaching out to local companies and organizations to ask for assistance keeping the camp affordable.
Each sponsor is recognized on our
camp T-shirt and in our end-of-camp program. Thank you for your time and
consideration of becoming a 2018 SMI sponsor.
