Systems Control sponsored an in-house competition, for the Electrical & Mechanical Systems in Industry (Mechatronics) class. They designed the competition and awarded prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place students. Students were judged on their ability to wire a panel using a wiring diagram to System Control standards and they must land 19 wires with proper labels, uniform wire lengths, no loose wires, and no bare wire showing. They were also judged on employability skills, attendance and on the knowledge of the wiring schematic to explain how the wiring circuits work. Instructor, Susan Sturm and the EMSI students are extremely grateful for the enthusiasm and support of these generous business partners.

Every year the Tech Center invites all the local schools for a tour. Freshman and Sophomores are able to see what courses are available to them and if it peaks their interest. Yesterday we captured Norway-Vulcan freshman in the Health Occupations class with Mrs. Johnson.
Mandi-kin was the center of conversation. She is Health Occ’s latest and greatest, very expensive learning manikin. Mandi-kin can talk, has breath sounds, pulses, belly sounds, she blinks, and can have fluids extracted. She simulates real-life medical scenarios, such as a heart attack, for the students to learn from while being in a safe learning space.

Mrs. Sturm's first-year Mechatronics students are competing in the 5th annual Systems Control wiring competition. This competition simulates wiring a basic panel from Systems Control. The competition was kicked off with a presentation from Systems Control on the career opportunities available and interviewing tips. For the competition, the students are given drawings and must land 19 wires with proper labels, uniform wire lengths, no loose wires, and no bare wire showing. The students will also be tested on their knowledge of the wiring schematic to explain how the wiring circuits work. This competition uses skills previously learned in class on circuit fundamentals and electrical panel wiring.
Good Luck!

Mr. Jayne's Construction Trades students are paired up and building mock bathrooms. During the school year the students will learn and practice rough and finish carpentry; basic plumbing and electrical installation; insulation; drywall hanging and finishing; building codes and laws; and general safety. The students drywalled last week and some of them were able to start spraying the wall texture and then paint their space the color of their choice.

You will be a welding master and learn all welding techniques with Mr. Paulsen and Mr. Mitchell. These students are TIG welding. TIG is a subset of gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), using a mechanism called filler wire agitation to enhance molten weld pool dynamics. This agitation has been found to enhance the weld puddle fluidity and release evolving gases, reducing the chances of inclusions and porosity, and also separate impurities.

Mrs. Frates' Graphics class recently learned how to do this technique on t-shirts. How do you screen print, you ask?? Isabella is demonstrating the printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink (or dye) onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multi-coloured image or design.

WOW, Graphics student have been hard at work creating Product Design projects. Students create their own product, product name and design both the logo for the product as well as the label/container. Some students chose to make silly, non-realistic items, however, everyone worked to make a design that would be believable as an actual product design.
This looks like a super fun project that all the students had a great time creating! Fantastic products!

Northern Michigan University Jacobetti Center Tour! What a GREAT opportunity for our students.
A special thank you to Carmen Thomma-Franks and Michigan Works for sponsoring this tour by paying for the bus.
On Tuesday February 8th, 23 students from Mrs. Sturm's Mechatronics classes traveled to NMU Jacobetti Center for a tour. Dr. Mike Rudisill, Engineering Technology Department Head, and Megan DelBellow coordinated a tour of the facility as well as presenting the students with degree options in the Engineering Technology department. There are 4 year degree options including mechanical engineering technology, and electrical engineering technology as well as several 2 year degree options. There are many career opportunities all over the nation with these degrees. The two biggest demands are electrical power and CNC machining. The CNC machining skills learned here are used in all industries from medical to automotive, aerospace and more. The classes at the Jacobetti Center are hands-on using some of the same trainers we have at the Tech Center. The students were treated to lunch and a presentation by Rusty Bowers from the Admissions Department before returning home.

How cool is this Robot Welder?!! I have never seen one used until I started working at the Technical Center and this trained student is demonstrating how to use it.
Robot welding is the use of mechanized programmable tools (robots), which completely automate a welding process by both performing the weld and handling the part. Processes such as gas metal arc welding, while often automated, are not necessarily equivalent to robot welding, since a human operator sometimes prepares the materials to be welded. Robot welding is commonly used for resistance spot welding and arc welding in high production applications, such as the automotive industry.
