High school teachers are invited to Central Community College-Columbus July 14-16 for a fun and creative professional development opportunity.

  • Network with other teachers to write lessons relating to process instrumentation and control.
  • Interact with a panel of industry leaders and current mechatronics students.
  • Opportunity to work with visiting mechatronics instructor Doug Laven from South Central College in Minnesota.

Participants will receive:

  • Valuable insight into high demand technical careers.
  • Lunch and a $110 daily stipend.

This opportunity is possible thanks to a National Science Foundation grant.
