Internship 2022 August Update

Our time here with the interns is coming to a close in late August. As we get ready to wrap up our internship, let’s have a look at what the team was up to during the month of August.

In August, we were joined by two new student interns who came in to help and learn more about the GennFlex Program. Welcome, Anna & Dan! Both are high school students looking to expand their knowledge in the STEM field.

Since the end of July, the teams have been steadily working on new projects that will be featured at the 2022 SmartForce Student Summit expo, and they all have been working hard for it. The group has split into new teams to work on a specific project. One team focused on gaming programs, another focused on a mini-factory assembly, while the third team was working on a machine tending robot application.

The games team has been working on creating an advanced sling puck robot setup to challenge any other robot in the game of Sling Puck! Do you think your robot can challenge ours? They have also made a more advanced version of the crane game with the game responding lights and sounds, a working arcade joystick, and a button. The last project that the games team has in store is a robot that will launch candy at booth visitors at IMTS.
