Over the course of five weeks, the New Britain Ventures team – consisting of 7 high school students and three college students – manufactured parts for the 2017-2018 Afterschool Program kits and designed, tested, and manufactured a Simple Machine kit to be introduced this year.

The Simple Machine kit incorporates all six simple machines in a creative and fun way that allows middle school students to not only learn about the concepts but to recognize where simple machines are used in day to day life.

In addition, the interns partnered with Travelers to laser-cut and package 500 key chains and manufactured awards for Boehringer Ingelheim.
