PRIMA Girl attended the Girls Learning About Manufacturing (GLAM) with others from the Mobile County School System and surrounding areas July 25-27 at Bishop State Community College.
The camp was held at the community college’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, and was sponsored by the non-profit GLAM with Executive Director Robin Ricks.
According to PRIMA Girl officials, the camp consisted of a tour of Austal USA, Flight Works Alabama and Airbus U.S. Manufacturing. Presentations were also given by BSCC staff as well as employees from AM/NS Calvert and Novelis, where campers were given hands-on activities and STEM projects to conduct. “This was a great opportunity for young ladies to learn about careers that are particularly male-dominated, that are available to them as well that they may not initially think about pursuing,” PRIMA Girl Executive Director Nicole Jones said.
The PRIMA Girls who attended the camp included Alondrea Bayne, Ava Bayne, Jamyia Craft, Kearden Frye, Laya George and Shanae Knight. Chaperones included Jones, Marlo Young and April George.
