Virginia Beach, Va. - A Virginia Beach company has a unique type of summer camp for kids – manufacturing

Over the next couple of days, 36 students divided into teams will design and build three different types of lighting fixtures.

They all have to be made from Stihl parts and include a desk lamp, flashlight and pinlights.  The idea is to show kids that manufacturing in America is real, viable and kids can have fun with it.

Each member of the winning team wins a $1,000 scholarship.

Winners will be announced Saturday.
