Western Nevada College Jump Start students celebrated the conclusion of a fall semester of Advanced Manufacturing training by holding an Olympics of sorts on Thursday morning. The Career and Technical Education students, who represent Carson and Dayton high schools, put their newfound industrial technology knowledge into a series of Olympic-type games. “This is an end-of-semester project demonstrating coding and building of small robots, and presentation skills for students studying advanced manufacturing,” said WNC Professor of Electronics and Industrial Technology Emily Howarth. “This class and lab work has reinforced for students the importance of initiative and drive on the job, showing them that they can learn and do a variety of technical work tasks.” Individuals can take three classes (online and in-class options) in one semester to become certified to work in an above entry-level-position in Advanced Manufacturing.
