Description: Have you ever
wondered how mathematics and science are actually used to improve the
processes to build things like BMW vehicles? Did you know these
improvement tools and processes are also used by other industries and
organizations such as healthcare, finance and the U.S. Armed Forces? The
Academic Outreach Camp will introduce students to exciting and real world
applications of mathematics and statistics. In addition, their team work
and leadership skills will be honed and improved. Students will gain hands-on
experience in learning and applying Lean and Six Sigma tools to
computerized challenges, physical simulations, case studies, and teaching
games. Students also will have the opportunity to meet with manufacturing
professionals using these tools and skills as part of their careers.
Students will also participate in an in-depth tour of BMW and USC
Upstate’s Healthcare Simulation Center. They’ll even get a chance to
improve their driving skills behind the wheel of a BMW vehicle.
