On December 14, 2022, BCTC’s Computerized Machining students trained with a representative from National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) HUNCH, a program designed to empower and inspire high school students through project-based learning. Students reviewed NASA’s strict standards, procedures, and quality assurance protocols. These students will be fabricating a component for the International Space Station (ISS), and students and administrators from BCTC signed a lid to a locker that will carry experiments to ISS.

Additionally, over 150 students from nine career and technical centers competed at the SkillsUSA District 4 Competition on December 20 and 21, 2022, at BCTC’s East and West Campuses. Competitions ranged from presentations, written tests, and hands-on skills. Twin Valley BCTC students who placed are: Connor Hackenberg, Computer Systems Networking & Security – 1st Place Information Technology Service; Kaleb Pfleger, Precision & Computerized Machining Technology – 1st Place CNC Turning Technology; Joshua Quaintance, Welding Technology – 2nd Place Welding; and Cole Sterling, Automotive Technology – 2nd Place Automotive Maintenance & Light Repair

Congratulations to these students on their accomplishments!
