The Engineering Applications with Robotics program at the Sanford Regional Technical Center is now sponsored by Pratt & Whitney! The attached photo is from the celebration and photo opportunity to acknowledge this gift made through the Sanford Schools Legacy Foundation. Pratt & Whitney has been a long-time supporter of our FIRST Robotics involvement, so their sponsorship for this program is a perfect fit. Pictured are Matt Nelson, Superintendent of Schools and Legacy Board Member, Patsy Aprile, Legacy Board President and COO of Southern Maine Health Care, James Brann, former PMT mentor, Engineer, and Business Unit Manager for one of Pratt & Whitney North Berwick’s business units, Lorelei Richey, Sr. Director of Operations at Pratt & Whitney, Tom Stierhoff, Robotics Engineer and Robotics Team mentor at Pratt & Whitney and Mark Patterson, Legacy Board Member and owner of Patco Construction. A big thank you to Pratt & Whitney for their ongoing support of the Sanford Regional Technical Center!
Academy of Business students easily transitioned to remote instruction last week and presented their projects remotely. Our Academy of Business PM students were doing presentations about the Marketing Research Process. Students worked on presentations in teams of 2-3 and covered the following topics: 1. Components of the Marketing Research Process 2. Limitations of Market Research 3. Benefits of Market Research 4. Technology that Can Be Used to Conduct Market Research on Industry, Customers and Competition. Also, National M&M Day was on October 13. The AM Academy of Business students had to design their own M&M product and present it to the class showing how they incorporated the Marketing Mix (Product, Price, Place and Promotion). Students voted for their favorite, which was designed by Elaina Eves from Noble High School.
Many thanks to our SRTC Instructors who quickly transitioned to remote instruction last week for Thursday and Friday. Here, Chef John Couture, Culinary Arts Instructor, teaches through a live demo for students.
