Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs, the foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Intl., collaborated with the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship to present Kidworks, a summer camp for 12- to 14-year-olds from the Rockford area.

Kidworks was held in July at Rock Valley College/TECHWORKS, Jon Lundin Learning Center, to offer the students the opportunity to learn the nuts and bolts of manufacturing, giving them hands-on experience to set a foundation for a future in the trades. The camp also introduced students to entrepreneurship skills and provided information about how a product becomes a business. Kids learn about cutting technology, CAD/CAM, CNC and manual milling and machining, and shop safety.
