Learning and technology will be at the forefront of presentations and tours on Wednesday, May 23, at Roane State Community College’s Clinton Higher Education and Workforce Training Facility.

That’s when a tractor-trailer named the Siemens Mobile Showcase will roll onto the campus, located off Charles Seivers Boulevard at 214 Nave St.

That 38-foot-long “demonstration-on-wheels” is “packed full of the latest and greatest high-tech automation, communications and instrumentation technology,” said Gordon Williams, mechatronics program director.

High school students from Anderson, Morgan, Roane and Loudon counties have been invited to tour the trailer displays between 9:30 and 11 a.m., and Williams said members of the public are also welcome then.

The displays will highlight how “Siemens technology can benefit a customer in the areas of designing, commissioning, monitoring and maintaining their automation equipment,” according to a news release.

Then, from 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., there’ll be an invitation-only, on-campus lunch for employees of local industries who are experts in engineering and technology.

Those 30 to 40 representatives will also be given a tour of Roane State’s Clinton campus as well as the mobile showcase. Those employees are invited to two technology-based presentations from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Siemens is a German industrial conglomerate and Europe’s largest industrial manufacturer. Brozelco of Rockford, Tenn., a supplier of Siemens products, is also helping facilitate the event.

For more information, contact Williams at (865) 354-3000 ext. 4899 or williamsg1@roanestate.edu.
