Antigone Sharris, Engineering Technology Coordinator at Triton College and coordinator of Camp GADgET, never fails to inspire the young girls who participate in Camp GADgET. The camp, a summer program open to girls age twelve to sixteen, seeks to motivate female youths by introducing them to the opportunities available to them in the field of manufacturing. Through hands-on experiences and site visits, the girls are able to build teamwork and problem-solving skills.
On July 16, 2015, Century was proud to welcome back the GADgET Girls for their fourth summer in a row. While at century, the girls were given a tour of our facility, heard from different members of our team about careers in manufacturing, and participated in a metal spinning project. Each girl spun a bowl and lid that they were able to bring home to show their families.
Century loved having the girls back, and we look forward to hosting the camp again in years to come.
