Company offers work placement to young designers at Fab Lab boot camp

Young people interested in design and enterprise have the opportunity to attend a free boot camp next month.

Fab Lab Airedale is running a design and enterprise boot camp for 16 to 18-year-olds, in conjunction with medical supplier DePuy Synthes, which is offering accompanying work placements.

The camp, running from April 7 to 11, will feature a series of activities aimed at inspiring students to be innovative and learn skills in design, product development and engineering.

They will get involved in business and enterprise activities, accessing the Dalton Lane-based Fab Lab’s equipment, which includes 3D printers and laser cutters.

The teenagers will also be introduced to Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacture, and will be helped to develop problem solving, budget management and time management skills.

Chris Stott, business operations and sales manager at Leeds City College, which part-funds the Fab Lab with Bradford Council, said: “The week is suitable for young people looking at a wide range of career options, and would be an excellent addition to any CV, portfolio or personal statement.”

The week will conclude with a presentation to a group of ‘Dragons@ from DePuy Synthes and a prize giving session.
