Students from Bernhard Moos Elementary School produced these parts on the CNC machines at Wright College in Humboldt Park during the Young Manufacturers Summer Academy.

Wright College in Humboldt Park hosted the Young Manufacturers Summer Academy from July 27-31, 2015.

Students from Bernhard Moos Elementary School — including Maritza Rangel and Jackson Sirouatka (pictured) — learned how to use CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) machines, used computer software to draft 3-D images (CAD/CAM) and used technology to measure specific data points on projects they created. The students were awarded certificates for their participation in the Young Manufacturers event.

Wright College in Humboldt Park now offers a CNC Manufacturing Basic Certificate (16 credit hours in one semester), which is a stackable college credential aligned with the associate degree at Daley College.

The CNC Basic Certificate includes skills training in mill and lathe operations, giving students the opportunity to earn multiple National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certifications within one semester.
