The RoboDawgs took their robots out to AUTOCAM earlier this month to support National Manufacturing Day. AUTOCAM (www.autocam.com), in association with Michigan Works (www.michiganworkska.org), held an event to highlight the fact that 85% of today’s careers require education beyond high school. Juniors and Seniors from the RoboDawgs team demonstrated robots that run on land, water, air, and in near space for administrators and guidance counselors from a variety of Kent County schools.

AUTOCAM’s event focused on ways that area manufacturers and after-school STEM opportunities, such as the RoboDawgs program, are creating the future of manufacturing. Our students had a great opportunity to demonstrate the potential scope of extracurricular STEM education for area educators. As a result of our Manufacturing Day show, we’ve added Godwin Heights Public Schools to the list of area districts where the RoboDawgs are helping to start robotics programs at the middle school and high school levels.

RoboDawgs “putting on the show” for Manufacturing Day included Amanda Bowerman, Brittany VanTuinen, Annika Rolo, Jackie Burch, Rebecca Licata, Dakota Hamilton, Steven Aldrich, and Lucas Buck!
