Riley Lordon & Savannah Johnson, juniors at Cazenovia HS took what they learned in Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) class last year and brought it to life in Michigan this week. They presented “Industrial Robots in the Classroom” at the SME Headquarters in Southfield Michigan to many members of the SME Education Foundation as well as their sponsors.
They built a robotic workcell which simulated a grinding operation that included an electric turntable parts feeder that they made, a grinder made out of VEX components, and a Dobot Magician robot. It was a closed loop system that used inputs and outputs with the Dobot to complete the task and then palletize the final product.

Riley & Savannah show off the new presentations to one of the SMEEF board members.
Great to see more girls than boys at SME Education Foundation headquarters!
The E in STEM also stand for English as well as Engineering! Here's a Haiku to prove it.
Riley shows what the Dobot can do in Southfield Michigan, right outside of Detroit.
Savannah & Riley are ready to present "Industrial Robots in the Classroom" at SMEEF HQ.
So you know about the cell that Marquardt Switches donated to Cazenovia High School, right? There’s a little more info here.
Scott Hansen, The engineer who designed and built the cell that manufactures power tool switches came to school to briefly explain how the cell operates.
The cell was used to make power tool switches, and was donated to our department. This year, a group of EDD students are going to disassemble it, bring it into the classroom, and reassemble it.
Watch this video below for a quick intro to what it does, and stay tuned for much, much more.
