Building Momentum holds a monthly workshop to train the U.S. Marine Corps' members in the areas of science, engineering and technology. The Innovation Boot Camp provides trainees with lectures and exercises in computer programming, coding, welding basics and 3D printing, the service branch said Wednesday.
“The problem solving aspect has always been at the center of what we do,” said Thomas Sullivan, director of training at Building Momentum. “We believe you need a better understanding of different problem solving techniques, and not just the one that you’re good at.”
Trainees will also be granted access to available resources for the program, including metal, wood and electronic workshop areas. In addition, the students may bring the technology and gears they produced from the workshop.
