Electronics show today at Goshen College

GOSHEN — The biannual Goshen College Electronics show is set from 3 to 5 p.m. today in the GC Recreation-Fitness Center.

The show will feature 10 projects created by 28 students for their electronics/robotics course. This year’s show will include a 3-D printer, a 3-D scanner, a radio-controlled quadrotor helicopter with a claw, a self-balancing scooter, firefighting robots, a self-driving car and a robotic arm that mimics hand movements.

The event is free and open to the public.

According to organizers of the GC event, “As drones, 3-D printing and other technology becomes increasingly prominent in society, it’s exciting to see local applications of these new technologies, especially by students.”

The electronics/robotics course is taught by John Ross Buschert, professor of physics and department chairman.
