A group of College Camp guests learn about advanced manufacturing processes in the MIKE, Mid-State’s mobile manufacturing lab. The MIKE lets participants use a computer to design a product, create code to operate an automated machine, vacuum form their own design into a mold and reverse engineer a product using a 3D laser scanner. The workshop is just one of the options available in this summer’s College Camp on June 12.
