Students study technology at workshops

NORWALK - Cerritos College's Pathway Programs hosted middle school and high school students from several school districts in summer workshops.Students were introduced to careers in science, technology, engineering and math. "This is the second year that we taught robotics to middle and high school students on the Cerritos College campus," said Sandra Bruesch, who helps students in the robotics class. Since June, workshops covering topics such as robotics, solidworks and career exploration have been offered at no cost to students. The robotics workshop held an in-class competition on July 13, where President Dr. Linda Lacy and board of trustees member Bob Arthur joined to see what students were learning. Participating students will compete at the VEX Robotics competition later this year, according to Bruesch.
