The new STEM Robotics Platform offers a selection of pre-engineered robotic solutions that meet the requirements of secondary educational programs focused on advanced manufacturing and robotics. The standard configurations and available options provide a package of leading technologies typically encountered in manufacturing environments, including components provided by the Yaskawa Motoman Education Consortium (YMEC). Educators can purchase a complete package or components to build a custom education system that best fits planned course work and classroom layout. 

“We developed the STEM Robotics Platform to provide community colleges, vocational schools and technical colleges with the best possible equipment for teaching industrial robotics,” said Erik Nieves, technology director. “Students are excited about robotics. The success of high school robot competitions like FIRST and Vex make students enthusiastic about robot programming, and each year, growing numbers are looking for opportunities to learn more.” 

Additional education tools are offered, including the Simple Education System (SES) and customizable training programs. SES is a PC-based robot simulator that allows customers to learn to operate and program Motoman robots in the virtual world while keeping their actual robots in production.
