The North Alabama SolidWorks Users Group (NASWUG), Dynetics, & Trobotics Inc. will be sponsoring a BEST Robotics SolidWorks Training Class this Saturday August 21, 2010 at the Calhoun Community College Campus in Decatur, Alabama. We will be providing hands-on SolidWorks training for North Alabama Schools participating in the BEST Robotics competition this year. The training will take place at the Noble Russell Building, Room 115.

Class instruction is already covered, but we are looking for volunteers to help guide the students as they follow along in the class. If you are interested in volunteering your time to help in the training sessions, please send me an e-mail (ricky@naswug.com) There will be a morning session (9:00am -11:30am) and afternoon session (12:30pm – 3:00pm).
