Ionia High School began a FANUC robot computer programming course last year. "This is a really unique, hands-on learning opportunity for high school students," Ionia High School Principal Ben Gurk said. "What our students do is learn how to program and operate our FANUC robot. This really prepares students for immediate employability and success in a robot or automation career pathway."
To earn certification, students have to meet classroom goals, complete an online course and pass a final exam and demonstration, said Andrew Keson, teach of the Ionia FANUC class.
