PITTSBORO - The Central Carolina Community College W.O.W. (Workshops on Weekend) series held an Electronics Engineering Technology workshop at the CCCC Chatham Main Campus in Pittsboro on Saturday, Nov. 18.

CCCC Electronics Engineering Technology Lead Instructor Sandra Castonguay and CCCC Electronics Engineering Technology second-year student Mimi Dixon, who gave the students a brief introduction on electronics and engineering and its application to movement, facilitated the workshop. The student and parents were shown prototypes of robots in motion that were built by the CCCC Student Outreach & Recruitment and Electronics Engineering Technology departments. The students were given a variety of supplies and materials to be creative and build their own wiggle and wobble bots.

The W.O.W. series was designed to provide the students in the CCCC service learning area with an outlet to explore the sciences, technology, engineering, the arts and math (S.T.E.A.M.). The CCCC Foundation funds the W.O.W. series.
