Virginia Western Community College STEM Building, Roanoke, VA, USA

RBTC’s women in tech “WoTech” heads to Virginia Western Community College to get hands on in the mechatronics lab! Join us for a cool STEM experience at Virginia Western’s STEM Building. With a squadron of 3D printers, a CNC mill, a CNC router, a water jet cutting machine, a laser engraver, and more, the Fabrication Laboratory is a great maker space to explore hands-on technology. See how  concepts and ideas are made real on a tour of the state of the art Fab Lab.

VWCC’s 72,000-square-foot facility, dedicated to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, is the largest on campus and was designed with input from faculty and staff to best serve the region’s growing needs.  Programs in the STEM Building include Mechatronics, Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Physics and Mathematics. New cutting-edge equipment fills the space and includes a 24-foot water flume and a collaborative robot.
