EPS Donates to Manchester Machine Makers

East Dorset, October 18#&8212;Engineered Printing Solutions (EPS) donated $2,000 to the Manchester Machine Makers, a local robotics team, as part of its continuing support of the group. Isaac Vernon and Charlotte Ruley, both students at Burr & Burton Academy in Manchester, stopped by to receive a check and take a tour of our facility.

EPS’ Julie Glover presents a check to Isaac Vernon and Charlotte Ruley, president and vice president of the Manchester Machine Makers.

EPS has been supporting the team for several years now. In addition to financial support, EPS will conduct an engineering review of their robot, and EPS employee Randy Marsh will teach team members in the use of SolidWorks, a solid modeling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering computer program.  EPS will also provide support for software programming and fabrication of the robot, and is also hoping to offer an internship to one of the Makers next summer.

The team is a chartered 4-H Club by UVM Extension, and recruits team members in grades 7-12 from all schools in the Manchester area.  They are always open to having new members join the team.  Engineered Printing Solutions is proud to help develop the workforce of tomorrow.
