This past spring, Yaskawa Motoman invited student groups to take facility tours and speak with automation professionals about future job opportunities. Attendees also had the opportunity to see live robotics demonstrations.

In April 2016 ─ to celebrate National Robotics Week ─ Yaskawa Motoman hosted more than 350 students from schools and career centers, including the following: Bishop Leibold School, Brookville Intermediate School, Cincinnati Hill Christian Academy, Collins Career Technical Center, Dayton Early College Academy, Grant Career Center, Horizon Science Academy Dayton High School, Middletown High School, Monroe Junior and Senior High Schools, Temple Christian School, Thurgood Marshall High School, Trenton High School, Valley View Local Schools and West Carrollton High School.

National Robotics Week provide[d] us with yet another opportunity to share why STEM robotics education is vital to workforce development,” said Bob Graff, senior sales manager, education.

“During this event, students [learned] about industrial robotics and the many career path opportunities that are available, and we are encouraged by their excitement and the interest they’ve shown.”
