Automation Education:
Aligning Skills Between Industry and Academia

There are incredible opportunities for students in careers that intersect with automation technology. And these jobs span across multiple industries like manufacturing, agriculture, logistics, even healthcare. These are high-skilled, high-paying jobs that resonate with our hands-on, kinesthetic learners. 

The need for technical education has never been greater, and employers are ready and willing to partner with their local school districts to get more robotics curriculum into the classroom.

This one-day event that will bring together K-12 educators, technical and community colleges, and industrial employers to see how we can all work together to provide more hands-on automation education for our students interested in these pathways.

Thursday, November 2nd
