LEE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Local middle and high school students spent some time Thursday getting hands-on experience with top-of-the-line manufacturing technology as part of the 11th Annual Tek2Go Summer Camp.

The kids cut and assembled metal parts using various manufacturing technologies.

The weeklong camp is funded by the Toyota Wellspring Education Fund, Hawkeye Industries, the Tupelo Community Development Foundation and Itawamba Community College.

It gives the students a chance to see some of the advanced manufacturing careers and skills they have available.

"My favorite part was making the clock, and I will attend it also maybe to do it again just because it was really fun and educational and just because I really liked it," camper Cergio Salinas said. 

Next week, the campers will be a little older.

It's for some of the area's teachers.
