PCCUA-Stuttgart C&TC students engaged in unique experiences
Posted Date: 9/14/23
Students in the PCCUA-Stuttgart Career & Technical Center have already been engaged in some unique experiences this semester, which are providing hands-on learning.
In our Advanced Manufacturing class taught by instructor Chris Warwick, students have been introduced to the world of industrial safety. They have been learning not only the importance of industrial safety but, also, how to effectively use the necessary safety equipment for various tasks. Through hands-on learning activities, they have gained practical knowledge about selecting and utilizing the appropriate safety equipment for specific job requirements. This experience has equipped them with valuable skills and a understanding of the significance of safety in the manufacturing industry.
In our Medical Professions classes instructed by Amanda West and Carlee Currie, guest speaker Dr. Peighton Taylor, of Little Rock, provided students with a glimpse into the career of a physical therapist. She shared her own experiences, discussing the various educational paths available and the diverse environments in which physical therapists can work. What made this session so beneficial was the hands-on opportunity for students to practice physical therapy exercises on simulated "patients." By incorporating interactive lessons, discussions, and hands on experiences, students are more eager to actively participate in their education.
“I am incredibly proud of our students and instructors and grateful to our guest speakers for their valuable contributions,” said West. “By providing these hands-on learning activities and inviting industry professionals to share their expertise, we aim to equip our students with real-world knowledge and inspire them to pursue their passions.”
West noted that this is just a taste of the exciting things that are happening, and additional speakers, activities, hands on experiences, drones, robots, and other projects are still to come this ‘23-‘24 school year.
