More than 120 7th -12th grade students invaded the Tri-Rivers Career Center’s Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Technical Education Collaboration (RAMTEC) for the RAMTEC Vex Robotics Camp June 8 -10. During the 3-day camp they learned designing, building, programming and explored various Vex, Motoman, FANUC, Arduino and Nao robotics platforms.
Participants received intensive instruction in Robot C programming language, the engineering design cycle, Vex Virtual World Simulation software as well as the 2016 Vex “Nothing But Net” Drive, Programming and Team competitions.
The camp was sponsored by grants from the Honda Foundation, Yaskawa Robotics, Consolidated Electric, SME EF Prime and Ohio’s Straight A Grants. These companies and organizations are promoting camps as a way to promote manufacturing careers that will help us overcome the estimated 2.0 million American Manufacturing Skills Gap. These partners have really stepped up their support of manufacturing and robotics career exploration by supporting Vex camps.
