Work experience at Thermoteknix

July 17, 2019

We had the pleasure of welcoming two students for work experience this month. 

After giving the students a short history of Thermoteknix and essential health and safety training, they were presented with a task of building a line following robot.

The project brought together mechanical, electronic and software engineering. Computer software was used to design how the robot looks. A small computer was used to control in which direction the robot would move to follow the line.

As well as constructing the robot, the students also visited all the departments within Thermoteknix  to learn about the functions they perform.

At the end of the week, the students gave a successful demonstration and received a small computer each and £25.
