Facing the Judges at the Student Innovation Competition



The most difficult moment of the whole competition -- facing the judges and answering their questions.


This photo is from our annual Student Innovation Competition at Winthrop University. Amazing ideas came from the young minds of our community last week. There were ideas about coffee, new social media platforms, and some amazing philanthropic and non-profit ideas that came from these young minds.

    Last night, several organization representatives, educational institutions, and community members met to collaborate and identify the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for education, job training, and career paths in Rock Hill. Over 15 organizations and individuals took the podium and spoke about their efforts, success, and needs in developing a strong workforce in Rock Hill, as well as how to help individuals establish themselves in a career that pays a living wage.

    As part of this great committee, we are excited to get to the next level at the York Tech Innovation Lab. The lab was designed as part of one of the first Knowledge Park grants. The "Fab Lab," as we call it, is used heavily for classes, short term training and buisness/ entrepreneur incubator utilization. Two major programming areas are the Innovation lab and the Cyber Factory. In the innovation lab, we have high tech fabrication equipment, inclusing laser cutters, a milling system. 3D printers, roller/ mill machines, creative software and more! Our students and faculty plus Winthrop students and faculty use the lab a great deal. We also bring in a lot of middle and high school students for programming! Cyber-factory is a comprehensive industry 4.0 training system that uses RFID - Radio Frequency Identification - and NFC - Near Field Communication. In other words, it's a fully automated, SMART factory! We're excited to help ensure more entreprenuers have access to and suport in the innovation lab as we help promote talent development in our knowledge economy!
