Mikaela Domingo, ‘23, of Levittown, remembers being in her first robotics class in 11th grade and loving everything about it. It fed her fascination for building and creating moving parts. It ultimately led her to leave her home in Long Island to study civil engineering at York College of Pennsylvania, where she’s one of several students who will embark on a new opportunity that will continue to fuel that passion for creating.

A student research project at York College of Pennsylvania was chosen to receive $60,819 in grant money as part of the Manufacturing PA Initiative, as announced by Gov. Tom Wolf. York College’s project,”Developing Modular Co-bot Automation Solutions for the Testing Environment,” pairs it with MRG Laboratories, a client company located in the College’s J.D. Brown Center incubator, and local manufacturer Airline Hydraulics Corporation.

“I’m excited to have this experience and maybe build something from scratch,” she said. “It’s good for the College and the companies involved. More people will know about us and recognize the opportunities that York College provides. They didn’t go out and hire professionals to do this; they put students in the lab. I’m very grateful for that.”
