IMG_0471The Sylvania Campus, with the help of local school districts and a grant from the Oregon Department of Education, hosted a four-week, dual credit Digital Fabrication Camp for high school students ages 14-18 years old this summer. The camp offered students 7.5 PCC credits in Machine Manufacturing Technology that could be applied towards Digital Fabrication Certificate, which is slated to begin in December.

Students were introduced to Computer Assisted Machining (CAM) systems, laser cutting, printing, router fundamentals, digital laser scanning and project machine technology, through the creation of a board game from the packaging to pieces used for the game. Upon completion of the camp, students developed the competencies needed to use CAD software, computer­ driven fabrication machines and 3D digitizing tools and software to convert ideas into products.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
