National Guard Visits Engineering 

The National Guard visited Voc-Tech on Thursday, February 17th to work with our Engineering students. They provided students with hands-on robotic experience to garner interest in the National Guards STEM resources. 

Students were put into small groups and given a task briefing by the Guard. The robots were made using TETRIX Robotic Kits provided by the National Guard. An obstacle course was set up that the robots must navigate through while each group was being timed.

The National Guard will be back during March to provide another event for the other cycle.
