QCC's Professor Offers Unique Greeting to 2020 College Graduates

May, 2020

A special robotic congratulatory greeting was given to the Class of 2020 from QCC's Professor of Electronics Engineering Technology James Heffernan. The FANUC robot greeting was the creation of Mr. Heffernan who programmed the robot and his wife Luisa, who used her own childhood dolls that she adorned with homemade COVID-19 masks. The couple even ordered miniature caps and gowns from eBay to complete the visual.

"Luisa even had the stands for the dolls to hold them up in a standing position, and I used a couple of Wyvern mouse pads elevated by books for the platforms," Mr. Heffernan said. 

What a terrific way to welcome the Class of 2020!
