Engineering Technology Experience Tour
April 7, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Marshall Middle School students will be participating in an ET Experience tour.
Every year, FLATE invites Hillsborough County middle and high Schools with Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, to visit the Hillsborough Community College (HCC) Engineering Technology program and labs, housed on the college’s Brandon Campus. The tour experiences are hosted by FLATE staff and HCC faculty and usually last 1.5 – 2 hours. After a tour of the ET labs, including “hands-on” activities and equipment demonstrations (e.g. robotic arm, 3-D printing NAO robots), the experience will wraps up with a discussion about manufacturing careers, educational pathways and credentials. The School District of Hillsborough County is providing transportation for the students to and from HCC. All other costs will be covered by a grant from Hillsborough County.
