Robots Make Pancakes!
On Tuesday December 1, students in the Robotics and Automated Engineering Technology (RAET) program took a break from their usual routine and programmed their robots to do something fun, festive ... and tasty! Visitors to the robotics lab that morning were treated to a pancake breakfast, cooked by the robots!
In this photo sequence, RAET students Glen Collins (left), Kris Hewes, and Prof. Joe Cunningham watch as their robots (1) stir batter, (2) transport a cup of batter to the griddle, (3) pour the batter, (4) flip a half-cooked pancake, and (5) deposit a fully-cooked pancake onto a waiting plate. Eat up!
In honor of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, NHTI had its own week of awareness events from November 16-20. These events were aimed at increasing knowledge about hunger and homelessness in our community and encouraging students to get involved.
Students heard personal stories of homelessness at the Faces of Homelessness Panel, featuring speakers from the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness. (Missed the panel? Watch a clip at www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqNjhAH4DK8&feature=youtu.be). Students also got a taste for the way income divides our society at the Hunger Banquet, which included a presentation by Human Services Professor Bernard Bluhm and free lunch generously provided by Chartwells. Several students got an even more intimate look at what homelessness means when they spent the night sleeping on the quad in shelters of their own creation.
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week also involved three different collection drives. The Alternative Spring Break Club’s Hat and Mitten Tree and the Campus Activities Board sponsored “NHTI Cans Hunger” food drive both helped Friends of Forgotten Children. The campus-wide clothing drive benefited the NHTI community as well as Families in Transition.
The NHTI Cans Hunger drive alone collected over 200 food items for Friends of Forgotten Children. Staged as a friendly competition between student organizations, the Alternative Spring Break Club took first place with 62 points, edging out the NH Junior Dental Assistants Association with 61 points.
