Fab Lab Boot Camp

Boot Camp Provides Design and Enterprise Opportunities

Young people with an active interest in design and enterprise have the opportunity to attend a free boot camp next month.

Fab Lab Airedale is running a Design and Enterprise Boot Camp for 16-18 years in conjunction with leading medical supplier DePuy Synthes, which is also offering accompanying work placements.

The camp, running from April 7-11th, features a week-long series of activities aimed at inspiring students to be innovative and develop skills in design, product development, and engineering.

They will also get involved in business and enterprise activities, accessing the Fab Lab’s wide range of equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC routers. In addition they will get an introduction to CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture) as well as developing problem solving, budget management, project management, time management, team working and presentation skills.

Chris Stott Business Operations & Sales Manager at Leeds City College, which part-funds the Fab Lab with Bradford Council, said: “The week is suitable for young people looking at a wide range of career options, and would be an excellent addition to any CV, portfolio or personal statement.”

The boot camp is a part of an on-going partnership between Fab Lab and DePuy Synthes aimed at encouraging young people into engineering and to create a pipeline of potential employees for their business.

DePuy Orthopaedics, which designs, manufactures, markets and distributes products for reconstructing damaged or diseased joints and for repairing and reconstructing traumatic skeletal injuries, is setting a brief for the boot camp and their engineers will be working with candidates to help them develop their ideas.

The week concludes with a presentation to a group of ‘dragons’ from DePuy Synthes and a prize giving session.
