During the 2017 school year, Penn Robotics has successfully held Enrichment Workshops for fifth through eighth grade students. Team 135 members have taught the CNC engraver, CNC Laser Engraver, 3D printer, CNC plasma cutter, and the CNC mill on October 27th, November 24th & 25th, and December 27th & 28th to 23 students who were interested in gaining hands on experiences with STEM related activities.
Team 135 also demonstrated in common programs used at Penn High School for STEM related classes, such as Inventor and Photoshop. The young students had fun and entertaining breaks, by being able to drive and compete in little games with the T-shirt Launcher Robot. Overall, the students gained incredible knowledge through great experiences with many of the machines and programs.
The Penn Robotics team held the Enrichment Workshops devoting to help middle school families schedule their kids for classes and build interest in STEM related areas.
