Shelby Harrison, office coordinator for PCEC Student Services, worked
with a committee to pull this Tech Week event together. Harrison said
the event was similar to the college's Project Day, "but this
time it's a showcase for faculty and staff."
"This is every piece of PCEC on display," Harrison said.
"This is who we are."
Hayden Avery, a junior from Hopkins High School, joined others from
the school's FIRST Robotics team to operate their robot that made it
to the world championships last year. PCEC students, faculty and staff
are heavily involved in FIRST Robotics throughout the year and offer
teams practice space in the IDC.
Hayden said he's been involved in robotics since middle school.
"I've learned a lot: everything from working with simple tools to
welding to learning how to use a CAD machine," he said.
