Machine Tool Technology Students with NASA Banner
POCAHONTAS, AR Jan. 28— Black River Technical College’s Machine Tool Technology Program has become a NASA HUNCH partner. The mission of this new partnership is to “empower and inspire students through a Project Based Learning program where high school students learn 21st century skills and have the opportunity to launch their careers through the participation in the design and fabrication of real-world valued products for NASA.”
Through BRTC’s partnership with NASA HUNCH, students will be given the opportunity to work on special projects for NASA; for example, students will have the opportunity to make parts for the International Space Station, make parts that will be used to restore a plane that will be housed in the Smithsonian Institute, and work with NASA prints and other certified materials.
Phillip Dickson, BRTC’s Dean of Business & Technology, states, “I think this is a great opportunity for BRTC’s machine tool technology students and I’m very grateful for Mr. Barker’s hard work on establishing this partnership between BRTC and the NASA HUNCH program. I’m looking forward to seeing the projects our students are able to build and complete during their time at BRTC.”
