The inaugural Marine Industry Cares Foundation (MICF) 2015 Marine Immersion Summer Camp just ended with great success this past July in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., showing that the future shines brightly. With an aim to introduce high school students to the local boating industry, this program included two weeks of field trips, guest speakers, and hands-on projects (including designing tiny copper propellers for remote control boat races). The kids also got to talk with marine industry professionals from various companies and fields.
David Reed, Chairman of Marine Industry Cares Foundation, said, “At MICF we’ve had a vision for a summer program that offers high school students a chance to learn about the marine industry and the variety of great opportunities that are right here in our backyard. This program engages their imaginations and empowers them to reach for their dreams and goals.” He added, “I think the Summer Camp this year was a great start for achieving our vision.”
The MICIF, a non-profit organization aimed at bringing marine and local communities together, has a vision to expand awareness and fund-raising for local communities world-wide. Let’s hope they continue to grow. (MarineIndustryCares.org)
