Mobile Learning Lab

The future of machining is making its way to Western Colorado Community College and rural communities on the Western Slope, thanks to a generous gift made by the Sturm Family and ANB Bank. The donation, which totaled nearly half a million dollars, went to building a state-of-the-art mobile learning lab. The 53-feet-long, 8-feet-wide classroom will offer mechatronics courses to high school students, adult learners and employees enrolled in company training. The mobile learning lab is able to travel throughout Colorado and can make stops in rural communities of all sizes. Students will gain an understanding of how separate systems work together to make complex devices operate, and will learn how to build, fix and run these systems.

Topics offered:

  • Electrical (AC, DC)
  • Hydraulics
  • Pneumatics
  • Motors
  • Compressors
  • PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers)
  • Electronics
  • Robotics
