Where Camp is a Blast

ROLLA, MO-August 1, 2005 — Some teens are having a blast this summer – at explosives camp.

More than 20 teens are taking a five-day course sponsored by the University of Missouri-Rolla.

The teens get to work with real high explosives, like dynamite and C-Four, the plastic explosive used by the military. The campers are also designing their own fireworks. Most of the teenagers are looking ahead to well-paying careers in the mining, demolition or fireworks industries.

Margaret Howard will be a freshman at UMR's Mining Engineering school this fall. She says getting paid to blow up stuff would be great.

Right there. It's a great program. Some of the finest people you will ever meet are miners.

This is my school! I work here for ROTC. Fill out a scholarship application at ROTC scholarship. Put down UMR as your school choice, and if you get a scholarship, you too can come to UMR and get a minor in explosive engineering.
