AMP pro­gram wins man­u­fac­tur­ing award

Times-Record - - NEWS -

BAL­TI­MORE — The Un­tan­gled Minds Foun­da­tion and the Caro­line Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter’s Ad­vanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing Pro­fes­sion­als (AMP) pro­gram were re­cently rec­og­nized at the Re­gional Man­u­fac­tur­ing In­sti­tute (RMI) Cham­pi­ons of Mary­land Man­u­fac­tur­ing 2018 Gala in Bal­ti­more.

The pro­gram won an award in the STEM Stu­dent Ad­vo­cates cat­e­gory, rec­og­niz­ing in­di­vid­u­als, prod­ucts, projects or or­ga­ni­za­tions that have in­spired STEM stu­dents to con­sider jobs in man­u­fac­tur­ing.

The gala was at­tended by Alan Stein and Ni­c­hole Mi­ha­los of Tan­gle­wood Con­ser­va­to­ries in Den­ton, Su­per­in­ten­dent Dr. Pa­tri­cia Sae­lens, AMP in­struc­tor Keith Hale and AMP stu­dents Kyleigh Wit­ter, Cody Hunter and Mag­gie Ab­bott.

The AMP pro­gram was de­vel­oped with the sup­port of the Un­tan­gled Minds Foun­da­tion, the brain­child of Stein, founder of Tan­gle­wood Con­ser­va­to­ries. The foun­da­tion’s mis­sion is to em­power young minds and ed­u­cate them about the im­por­tance of lead­er­ship and en­tre­pre­neur­ial skill op­por­tu­ni­ties that lie be­yond tra­di­tional medi­ums.

In ad­di­tion to tech­ni­cal ed­u­ca­tion, stu­dents in the AMP pro­gram learn about time and project man­age­ment, cost es­ti­mat­ing, team build­ing, qual­ity im­prove­ments, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion and mar­ket­ing.

A blend of modern man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses and soft skills train­ing that em­ploy­ers need, AMP’s multi-dis­ci­plinary ap­proach to project-based learn­ing brings re­al­world ex­pe­ri­ence into the class­room, pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents seek­ing a ca­reer in man­u­fac­tur­ing to ex­pe­ri­ence the in­dus­try first­hand.

Founded in 1990, RMI, a non­profit, was cre­ated for man­u­fac­tur­ers in the Bal­ti­more Metropoli­tan area. To­day, RMI of Mary­land rep­re­sents the in­ter­ests of man­u­fac­tur­ers statewide, pro­vid­ing pro­grams, ser­vices and ad­vo­cacy.
