Engineering and computing students were among the first to create electronic prototypes and mini traffic light simulators when Creative Black Country teamed up with Black Country Atelier to help the college launch its digital fabrication laboratory in New Square, West Bromwich. Equipped with superb 3D printers, laser cutters and more, the Fab Lab will support the development and interaction of smart technologies in the region and beyond. The state-of-the-art facility was officially launched by leading Black Country business figures from the Consortium, Chamber of Commerce and Local Enterprise Partnership.
Black Country Consortium CEO Sarah Middleton was joined by chairman of the LEP Employment and Skills Board Paul Linton, Black Country Chamber of Commerce President Ninder Johal, and Sandwell Council leader Councillor Darren Cooper.
Principal Graham Pennington said: “We now have a localised ability to work with businesses and network across the world. We can open up school children’s minds to science and engineering by capturing their imagination, and we have a fantastic resource for our own students with real projects that they can help local businesses work on. We can also help local business with productivity and help create jobs.”
Paul Linton, from the Black Country LEP, added: “Thank you for the opportunity for us to support you and get students where they need to be – in employment.”
