Representative Matt Hatchett Sees Mechatronics Lab in Action!

Representative Matt Hatchett recently stopped by the Dublin City Schools College and Career Academy to see our Mechatronics Lab in action! The newest pathway combines mechanics, electronics and computer technology - ensuring our students are ready for work upon graduation.

“My dad’s an automation engineer, and I guess I want to follow in his footsteps,” said Dublin High School 9th Grader Marek Jaeger. “I think it’s a great class, especially since it’s giving us groundwork in coding on our micro boards and building robots.”

A direct result of local industry needs, our students were working on pocket-sized computers called microbits when Mr. Hatchett visited.

In addition to touring The WAY, Rep. Hatchett also paid a visit to the IGA’s STEAM Lab to observe the skills our elementary and middle school students are developing. This was especially interesting because Mr. Harvey is incorporating the basics of mechatronics into their curriculum.

Celebrating Our Best Graduation Rate Ever!

We love going around town and seeing so many green and gold bows in celebration of Dublin City Schools' BEST graduation rate ever - 97.7! With both Moore Street School and Dublin High School far exceeding the state average, our community sure does have a lot to be proud of!

Our leprechauns have been busy dropping bows off, so if you have one at your home or business & we inadvertently forgot to take a photo, please email amt@dcsirish.com!
