BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/18/13) - Some local high school students are getting to do more this summer than just play video games, watch TV or hang with their friends. More than 25 students will be attending Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College’s (SKYCTC) Career Craze Robotics Camp, a hands-on camp featuring Robotics and Mechatronics.
"As honorary chair of this initiative, I’m thrilled to promote our community and technical college system and encourage students and their families to consider a technical career," said Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson. "Parents often overlook the great paying career opportunities that their children can access with a community college certificate or associate degree. This makes KCTCS’ Career Craze summer camp program even more valuable to our Kentucky families."
The next FREE Career Craze Camp hosted by Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College will feature:
July 8, 2013 –July 11, 2013 - 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each day
Location: SKYCTC Transpark Center
221 Commonwealth Blvd. in Bowling Green
Participants in this camp will be exposed to the cutting edge technology in robotics, and mechatronics commonly used in the manufacturing fields. The LEAP program is designed to create educational awareness on careers available in manufacturing.
All 16 KCTCS colleges will host two camps during the summer. The camps will highlight different business/industry sectors such as utility, manufacturing, healthcare, etc. Students will learn more about each occupation and how it leads to high wage, high demand careers.
