Chattanooga State Community College has scheduled four summer learning opportunities, free of charge to students interested in engineering pathways and STEM careers. The Engineering and Information Technologies Division offers these camps to high schoolers through the Advanced Manufacturing Skills and Internship Program, AMSIP, with the primary goal of helping prepare eligible students for paid internship opportunities. As a career success workshop, it’s designed to help high school students better understand the various pathways in engineering, learn about local business and industry, as well as develop soft-skills to use in the workforce. 

The Advanced Manufacturing Academy for high school age students will be held at Chattanooga State’s Kimball Site, 2100 Main Street, beginning May 29 and ending June 1, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. CST. The second camp will be held from June 4-8 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. EST on the main campus, 4501 Amnicola Highway, in the CETAS Building, Wacker side. 

The Advanced Manufacturing STEM Day program focuses on middle school students. STEM educates students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — using an interdisciplinary and applied approach. It has been said that STEM is important “because our world depends on it.” According to an ID Tech blog, approximately 2.4 million STEM jobs are projected to go unfilled this year.

Advanced Manufacturing STEM Day will be offered on Saturday, June 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the CETAS Building, Wacker side, on Chattanooga State’s main campus. A second STEM Day has been scheduled at the Kimball Site, 2100 Main Street, on Saturday, June 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. CST.
