PTC Hands On Workshop - 10/27/12

Holland FIRST Robotics Team CHAOS (FRC Team 74) and Code Red Robotics (FRC Team 2771) is co-hosting with PTC a free hands-on workshop to show how you can build a better robot in less time using PTC software products Creo/Elements, MathCad and Windchill.

All Michigan FRC and FTC teams are welcome to attend.

PTC’s hands-on Product Development Workshop is an intense one-day workshop designed to teach FIRST teams, mentors and coaches about the real world product development process. Emphasis is given to hands-on exercises that will prepare the entire team to understand and implement a product development process for their robot design. It will also help develop team-building, entrepreneurship and design skills.
Given the timeframe, attendees will not acquire all the skills to master the concepts in just one day. Resources will be made available for further online training. This workshop is appropriate for both FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics teams.

Date: Saturday, October 27, 2012
Time: 9:00AM – 5:00PM
Location:  Haworth Inc
