Wilo, a provider of pumps and pump solutions for water management, building services and groundwater, was a sponsor of Thomas University’s “Camp STEMtastic” this summer, through the Wilo-Foundation. The camp is the University’s science and technology-focused summer program for young students, and the foundation has been an active sponsor since 2015.
Wilo USA welcomed this year’s group of campers to its production facility in Thomasville, Georgia as part of the program. The theme for this year’s camp was “The Human Machine.”
The students toured the Wilo USA facility of the camp and learned about the complex machines and systems used in production, as well as how Wilo pumps work to treat water supply and sewage within cities’ infrastructure. The campers also participated in a hands-on activity led by Wilo USA’s Director of Operations, Darren McGuire, in which they worked in teams to assemble two versions of a simple circulation system.
On the last day of the camp, campers’ friends and family members attended a reception in which the students gave a presentation highlighting the events of the week.
