Penn High School hosts robotics lab for grade school students

NOW: Penn High School hosts robotics lab for grade school students

MISHAWAKA, Ind.—Penn High School’s Robotics Team is hosting a series of workshops for young grade school students on Thursday and Friday.

High school students will be mentoring and helping students in grades one through eight with building 3D computer designs and creating machine parts.

The workshops are designed to expand students’ knowledge in designing and manufacturing.

Over the two days, students will be designing 3D parts on computers that can be brought to life using CNC machines.

Students will also be able to use a 3D printer, CNC laser cutter, CNC router, and other tools in the Penn Robotics Lab.

The group also plans to hold a workshop during summer vacation.

Recent Penn High School graduate, Ally Langfeldt said, “They’re learning but in a fun way. We do lots of games. Our CNC machines are also pretty cool to watch. It’s just a really fun time.”
