On April 19, the Energy and Electronics program hosted 14 youth and their mentors from Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Students and instructor Aaron Barker taught the BBBS kids how to program a robot to pick up a water bottle. After that, the kids got a tour and the chance to operate industrial robots and automated production lines.

“The activity was awesome! Especially how we got to control the industrial claw and we got a chance to build a robot,” said Little Brother JT.

BBBS comes to SCTCC for various activities, and the kids enjoy hands-on activities and seeing what career opportunities are out there.

“Aaron Barker and his students did a great job sharing their knowledge and passion for the robotics field with our youth,” said Ann Matvick, program director.
