Basin Precision Machining makes ongoing efforts to give back to our community. We strongly believe that training and education can empower anyone at any age to become their best self and contribute to the manufacturing industry.
We have provided support to the following programs:
The Whitewater High School Robotics Team
Named the Ferradermis, the FIRST Robotics teams competed with 120-pound robots of their own design, combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. FIRST POWER UP, the 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition game, found the teams trapped in an 8bit video game world! Teams used power cubes to defeat the boss.
The Ferradermis traveled to Milwaukee, WI in March for the Wisconsin Regional and took 1st place, giving them a spot at the FIRST National in Detroit, MI April 25th-28th, 2018.
Madison College’s “FabCamp (Focus: Metal Fabrication)” summer camp
This camp aligns with our initiative of increasing local manufacturing awareness, talent and recognition. Basin Precision Machining is sponsoring all 15 participants this year.
The Fort Atkinson campus of Madison College was awarded a grant by the Foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl., a group that aims to “engage, nurture and excite individuals of all ages in the pursuit of careers in manufacturing.”
The objective of this summer’s camp is to introduce boys and girls, ages 12-14 years old, to the world of manufacturing through hands-on projects made in real “shop” facilities. They will also view presentations by industry professionals regarding careers and training and make site visits to local manufacturing facilities. The camp runs from July 30 through August 3, for up to 15 hand-selected students who show the aspiration and devotion needed for a successful future career in manufacturing.
