Connecting STEM, Robotics, and Advanced Manufacturing Career Awareness Program

Connecting STEM

In celebration of Manufacturing Month, Magnet hosted Connecting Stem, Robotics, and Advanced Manufacturing Career Awareness Program on WVIZ/Ideastream.
 
The panel featured; In celebration of Manufacturing Month, Magnet hosted Connecting Stem, Robotics, and Advanced Manufacturing Career Awareness Program on WVIZ/Ideastream.
 
The panel featured; Elizabeth Irizarry, Product Portfolio Manager for Nordson’s UV and Powder Coating lines in the Industrial Coating Systems business segment. Anthony Valletta, Production Supervisor for Nordson Industrial Coating Systems. Seth Pisanelli, a Machinist for Nordson Industrial Coating Systems and Amonica Davis, Nordson’s Manager of Student Outreach, responsible for managing the Nordson BUILDS Scholarship Program.
 
The panel discussion was followed by robotic demonstrations from Beaumont High School’s Beaumonsters and Tri-C’s Youth Technology Academy. This year the Beaumonsters garnered the attention of CNN reporter Parija Bhatnagar at the National Robotics League championship. They were 1 of the 2 only girl teams in a field of 65. Youth Technology Academy, a workforce development, STEM training for high school students ages 14-18 offered through Cuyahoga Community College. The program affords high school students with the opportunity to take free college classes toward a certificate or degree on Tri-C’s campus while still attending high school. YTA uses several platforms for teaching and encouraging their students to enter robotics competitions domestically and internationally, such as the VEX Robotics Challenge and First Robotics Competition: participants work on teams building  and designing structures that are confined to a certain weight, size, and end function.


 
Through the spread of STEM academics the focus of MFG day is to expose students to real-life manufacturing processes to prepare them for STEM oriented careers.
