SPRINGFIELD — Timken Co. principal application engineer Tom Triola is pictured at right during a visit to Schrop Intermediate School April 3.

Triola spoke to Jenny Droppleman’s language arts students about engineering, how it applies to daily living and robotics design.

Droppleman said her sixth-grade students have been reading about robots and how a teen used a robot to go to school for her because of severe allergies. Triola was able to bring information on the application of engineering to their grade level, she added.

“The kids loved having him, and he loved being with them,” she said. “It was a great extension of our learning.”
