EAC offers Introduction to Robotics course

By Erin Larson

Thatcher, AZ—This fall, Eastern Arizona College’s Physics Department will offer a short term course in robotics. The course, PHY298F, Introduction to Robotics, section #6042, will familiarize students with mechanical assembly, electrical connections, and robot programming. “Robots are part of modern life,” says class instructor, John Ratje. “Anything that is dirty or dangerous can be done by robots now.”

The class will meet in MS-109 at EAC’s Thatcher Campus on November 5 and 11, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., as well as November 19, from 9 a.m. until noon.

This one-credit class is transferable as an elective credit to any university in Arizona.
