An advanced manufacturing and innovation academy (AMIA) had been implemented to engage talented young people and connect them with regional advanced manufacturing careers and related entrepreneurial activities. College professors and administrators used collaborative educational approaches to integrate advanced manufacturing pedagogy with robotics, digital manufacturing, and 3D printing. A tour to a local advanced manufacturing facility was conducted to broaden participants’ understanding of advanced manufacturing through direct examples of the themes of the academy. This paper covers the first year of AMIA (a work in progress) and details the background and motivation of the academy. Goals, educational components, partners and process implemented in year one of the AMIA are discussed. Interim assessment results, success, and lessons learned based on feedback of the participants is covered. Conclusions and next steps for AMIA year 2016 are discussed.
