For three-weeks this summer, 15 students from Monroe One BOCES' component school districts are participating in SAME (Summer Advanced Manufacturing Experience) taught by EMCC Automated Manufacturing & Machining Teacher Len Hall. Through this experience, students will tour six high-end companies and complete projects in the shop at EMCC. The program culminates on July 26 with an awards ceremony at MCC. Upon completion of the program, students will already have earned three college credits through MCC in machine shop lab TAM 141.
“The focus of the SAME program is to show the students advanced manufacturing skills,” said Hall. “By touring companies, students will learn what happens in a real-world setting in some great companies around the area. This is all supported by Monroe County Industrial Development Agency.”
During their shop time, Mr. Hall works with students on projects that introduce them to Precision grinding, print reading, Precision measuring skills, milling machines and engine lathes. Projects included making candle stick holders from hex and square steel, a three-piece brass whistle and a two-piece aluminum marble maze assembly.
Students spend the three Fridays during the program visiting local companies Gleason Works, Calvary Robotics, SPX Flow, Micro Instrument Corp, Corning Incorporated (Corning Tropel Fairport) and PMD - Progressive Machine & Design. On July 26, the final day of the program, students visit the Applied Technologies Center (MCC)before heading to the Monroe Community College Main Campus Flynn Center for the awards ceremony.
