Smith earns GED, quick transition to college

Smith earns GED, quick transition to college

Dublin, GA - Sabrina Smith earned her GED in only five short months while attending Adult Education classes at Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) in Dublin. Regular attendance to the free classes at the college and hard work helped Sabrina prepare for each section of the GED test with great success.

Sabrina grew up in Illinois and maintained good grades through junior high; however, in high school, her grades started to decline. She started missing school and eventually dropped out. In 2010, she moved to Dublin, Georgia looking for a fresh start, but she knew she needed to her GED before she could attend college or find a good job.

OFTC Electronic Technology students use robotics

OFTC Electronic Technology students use robotics
OFTC Electronic Technology students Kenneth Dent and Taharqa Smith are learning about the X, Y and Z Cartesian Coordinates and how they relate in a 3D plane. In this classroom video, you can see them learn to differentiate the three coordinates, as well as, showing the need for repeatability in a process - in this case, the playing of the song using robotics. These skills can directly translate in the workplace when programming is necessary to create a precise, automated and highly repeatable process. VERY COOL guys!
