BALL CHARTER MIDDLE LEVEL STUDENTS STUDY ROBOTIC ENGINEERING AND AUTOMATION

March 12, 2018

Ms. Kirby's class had a special visitor today.  Parker Kirby, Ms. Kirby's son, is currently a graduate student at Indiana State University majoring in Automation and Robotic Engineering.  He talked to the 7th and 8th grade students about the engineering field and what engineering looks like at the college level.  He introduced the students to 3D Modeling using the free software Tinkercad. The students are currently designing a mini Mars rover on this program and will use the 3D printer to create parts of the rover.
