TURBOCAM Invites PCA’s Physics and Robotics Class on Facility Tour

17-May-2016 – Barrington, N.H. (U.S.A.)

On May 12, a group of physics, robotics, and programming high school students from Portsmouth Christian Academy (PCA) toured TURBOCAM’s B1 facility. They were interested in seeing real-life applications of some of the class material they are studying as well as getting exposure to the manufacturing industry. They witnessed the automation that is used at TES and TAPS, and learned about the machining process. This will help them in their decision-making process when it comes to pursuing further education in the field.

The class was split up into two groups, one led by Chris Goepfert, Software Development Engineer and a 2006 PCA graduate, and another led by Nick Landry, Product Engineer. “The students showed a lot of interest in the technology and work that we do here,” said Goepfert. “It’s great to see so much enthusiasm about manufacturing and automation at their age.”

An article about the class trip was published in a recent PCA newsletter. You can read that article here.
