VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a Mechatronics Technician is like.
STEP 1: Find a robot pet! Research online to find ones that already exist, or make up your own.
STEP 2: Imagine you are a mechatronics technician working for the robot pet manufacturer. Create a one-page Robot Pet Care Guide to be included in the box when people purchase their robot pet at the store.
- What features does your robot pet have?
- How do you use it?
- How do you care for and maintain your robot pet?
- How can owners troubleshoot on their own before calling the manufacturer?
STEP 3: Share your Robot Pet Care Guide in the Student Showcase to build your resume and help people see how cool math is!
