AT&T Awards Grant to Orrville Area Boys & Girls Club

Funds will be used to purchase 3D lab equipment

Students from the Orrville Area Boys & Girls Club made themselves at home as they entered the UAWC3 Lab at The University of Akron Wayne College for a special presentation on Oct. 24. In fact, they were more familiar with the equipment and technology than some of the adults who were there because every two weeks the students attend 3D printing workshops in the lab made possible by generous donations, like the one that was taking place that afternoon.

Wayne College: Applied Learning is in the DNA

Wayne College biology professor A.J. Snow believes that students learn best by doing, and that belief -- along with significant community support -- has helped him create one of the most technologically advanced biology labs in the area.

Over $40,000 in new lab equipment, donated by local individuals and businesses, will be available to Wayne College students this fall. The equipment includes a microscope with a digital camera and Wi-Fi capabilities, a PCR machine that allows students to amplify DNA as they would for a crime scene investigation, and a plate reader for protein based tests common in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industry.
