Innovation Fund Interns

Innovation Fund Interns

 

Recognition Robotics is one of Lorain County Community College’s Innovation Fund awardees.  The company that develops software that gives robots the ability to see is also giving four students the ability to learn.  Every Innovation Fund company must provide internships for students on the LCCC campus.

Lorain County Community College students have that opportunity thanks to the Innovation Fund Experiential Education program. “The focus,” said Marcia Jones, LCCC Work Based Learning Coordinator, “is specifically on learning what it is to be an entrepreneur.  To study the realities and the skills and the qualities that are necessary to be successful.”

The program also requires the IF company to mentor, guest speak in classes on campus and work with small groups of students on case studies focused on topics of entrepreneurism and start-up businesses.  “It is our hope,” said Jones, “that this program will help our faculty incorporate entrepreneurism into their course curriculum, regardless of the field of study, because the whole notion of entrepreneurism is critical in any work environment today.”
