‘Maker Camp’ on Ankeny Campus

A middle school summer camp titled “Maker Camp: From Design to Display” was recently held on the DMACC Ankeny Campus for students interested in exploring how things are made. Fourteen-year-old Ethan Knight, a ninth-grader at North Polk, works on a lathe as fellow Maker Camp students and DMACC Tool and Die Program Chair Mark Rosenberry observe. Using computer-aided design software, participants utilized virtual reality, 3D printers and milling machines to create objects at the three-day camps they will be able to keep and use at home. The students also went on tours to DeeZee Manufacturing and John Deere to see real-world applications of the skills they learned. Photo courtesy of DMACC Bulletin
