Bridgeport Mill added to our Machine Shop!

We have received a very exciting donation to our machine shop! The Bridgeport milling machine is a very significant piece of machinery in the world of manufacturing. This is because of its versatility. It can, and has, for decades performed a variety of tasks with amazing precision!

The Bridgeport, or simply, “Mill” as it is often referred, has a digital reader to aid in precise work. It can cut metal, including steel as well as plastic and wood with extreme accuracy. The Mill can be used to create brackets to mount such things as tools, fishing rods, and racks, and is often used in the manufacture of automobiles.

Eastman Kodak has used Bridgeport Mills to build cameras. Stay tuned for more news on the newest addition to our machine shop!

Arduino Classes Coming in February


Join us for a series of three beginner Arduino classes! Participants in this series of three classes will leave with an Arduino Uno starter kit, knowledge of basic electronic principles & components, and a simple, working circuit of their own design. All classes will be held on Saturdays at 1:00-4:00 pm. Please sign up for each session separately.

Sign up for Part 1, held on Saturday, February 13. In this class, you’ll learn some basic electronics, have an introduction to Arduino, do some hands on with breadboarding circuits using each kit component individually, start thinking about your circuit design, and obtain your Arduino Starter Kit.

Sign up for Part 2, held on Saturday, February 20.¬† We’ll do a brief recap and then students will build a circuit that uses combinations of components. You’ll also present personal circuit ideas and and get feedback for your idea while providing other students with input on their ideas.

Sign up for Part 3, held on Saturday, February 27. We’ll again do a recap, then you’ll work on your personal circuits with the help of the instructor. We’ll wrap up by providing future learning material resources and contact info.

Your instructor for this series of classes is Mike Thomas, an RIT grad and Electrical Engineer who is currently working as a hardware design engineer for Bosch Security Systems.
