PAC Robotics students showcase Robbie the Robot
Four Palo Alto College students taking RBTC 1305
Fundamentals of Robotics Technology, taught by Mr. Leo Diaz, showcased their
newest creation on April 4 at an event by the San Antonio Area Foundation’s Spotlight
on Community Series featuring the Alamo Colleges. Robbie the Robot was built
and programmed by Jake Castro, Carlos Gonzalez, James Rowsey, Armando Garcia,
and Casey West.
Robbie the Robot showcased his skills through a variety of
calisthenics – pushups, squats, headstands, and more.
These students are evidence of Palo Alto’s goal to have
students understand the value of STEM programs to be better prepared to meet
future workforce demands in the San Antonio area. With the basics of robotics,
students understand how to use this technology in manufacturing industries and
also learn how advanced robotics can be used by the nation’s leading doctors to
perform basic surgical operations like appendix and gall bladder removal.
