DAYTON, OH — Yaskawa Motoman celebrated National Robotics Week by inviting student groups to take facility tours, speak with automation professionals about future job opportunities and interact with live robotics demonstrations.

Yaskawa Motoman hosted students from local schools and universities, including: Alter High School, Carroll High School, Franklin High School, Dayton Early College Academy, Edison Community College, Mother of Mercy, Sinclair Community College, The Ohio State University and Troy Christian.

National Robotics Week was instituted by Congress as the second full week of April every year. 2014 marks the fifth year for National Robotics Week, and its stated purpose is to recognize robotics as a key technology for our nation’s economy and, more importantly, to foster interest in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines among students.

“National Robotics Week is one of the highlights of our year at Yaskawa Motoman. It is gratifying to see so many young minds get enthusiastic about robots,” shared Erik Nieves, Technology Director. “These students are further evidence that the greatest generation of robotics engineers and technicians is coming!”

Yaskawa Motoman wants to inspire students to become involved in STEM courses and pursue careers in robotics. Job opportunities in this field continue to grow as more companies implement automation to meet production demands.
