Best of luck to students in the Engineering Applications with Robotics Program at SRTC, who are preparing to complete in FIRST Robotics events in Waterville this weekend. These challenging events are described on the FIRST website as the “Ultimate Sport of the Mind.” The website further describes the events as follows, “Under strict rules and limited time and resources, teams of high school students are challenged to build industrial-sized robots to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams, while also fundraising to meet their goals, designing a team “brand,” and advancing respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community.” This year, our team has been working diligently to design, build, and program a robot to succeed in the game, which involves launching a ball into hoops at various heights and maneuvering the robot to climb. The students are pleased to compete in the first events to be held in person in two years and they feel confident and proud of their success in preparing for competition. Although spectators are not allowed for the event this weekend, it will stream on the NEFIRST Blue channel at www.twitch.tv/nefirst_blue. Good luck, Team 3451! The photo shows students from the AM session of the program posing with the robot for this year’s events.

The Culinary Arts program, under Chef John Couture's guidance, catered a breakfast for Administrators and Counselors from our 8 partner schools on Thursday, December 16th. This was no easy feat, taking into consideration COVID precautions and timing (Chef's students show up at the time that the event starts) so lots of prepping occurred to ensure our guests were fed well and on time. We received nothing but rave reviews from the attendees, so complete kudos goes to you, Chef, and your team of students! Students were hard at work the next day, creating gingerbread. Nice work Culinary Arts!

Students in SRTC’s Fire Science program recently toured Southern Maine Community College. SMCC provides both an Associate’s Degree and Certificate program in Fire Science, making SMCC a great option for students interested in continuing their education in the field. In the words of SRTC’s Career Planning Coordinator, Jennifer Bartlett, “The SRTC group was wonderful and the SMCC Fire Science instructor's presentation and interaction with the students was outstanding. We had a beautiful, though chilly, picnic lunch outside overlooking the water!”
