[Repost @linaesostra ]: Thank you @sfu_coop for letting Benny and I represent SFU and show how awesome Mechatronics is at SFU 👩🏽‍💻👩🏼‍🔧! Benny is an robot nearly completely 3D-printed (even the wheels!), and was made by my good friend @willy_ckh . Hopefully by the end of August I’ll be posting some really cool demos of what Benny can do 👌🏽

Tatum, political science and economics student, had the amazing opportunity to teach his passion, hockey, to kids in China last summer. The skills he learned throughout his Co-op term gave him the tools to follow his passion and turn it into a profession! 🥅🏒

Queenie had the opportunity of a life time when she was invited to do a Co-op with TaLK (Teach and Learn in Korea). This opportunity helped Queenie overcome her fear of living in a new country for a year, she also realized how important it is to be open-minded, practice patients and relax & enjoy what life has to offer!

As an Employment Standards Officer, Tylor learned many valuable skills and had the opportunity to engage in exciting day-to-day duties such as conducting investigations, facilitating mediations and participating in inspections. However, what Tylor found the most valuable during his 1 year long experience as a public servant, was the knowledge passed down to him by the high caliber professionals he worked with and learning about the numerous career opportunities that the Public Service has to offer to CRIM a students like him! 🕵️‍♂️💼 To read more about Tylor’s enlightening co-op experience, visit his Arts Co-op and OLC Blog! #fass
