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.
SME (the Society of Manufacturing Engineers) has a great playlist of Youtube videos that outlines many basic manufacturingprocesses, and they are all right here for you. Most of the videos are from two to five minutes in length, and get the main points of those processes across to students in an easy to understand format. There are 44 videos in all. Thanks SME!
