Kellogg Community College’s Bruin Bots youth robotics after-school club engaged over 30 area youth from January through May of 2015. Students got hands on experience in designing and building robots and learned to create custom parts under the supervision of Industrial Trades faculty. They even got to learn the basics of Solidworks, which is a computer aided drafting program used to design parts on the computer that could then be brought to life using a 3D printer.
The program is offered annually through KCC’s Lifelong Learning Department and all activities are held at the college’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center’s (RMTC). Participation requires no special skills or knowledge – just a commitment to attend weekly practices and the desire to enhance science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills.
Practice location: KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center – 405 Hill Brady, Rd, Battle Creek, MI.
