Topeka High Schools to Offer Robotics Training

Economic development officials in Topeka say the city’s high schools will be the first in the nation to certify students in operating and servicing robots. Japanese company Yaskawa (yahs-COW-uh) will supply the robots needed for the training, which starts this school year. Doug Schenher (SHEN-er), with Yaskawa, says the company wants to increase the number of people prepared for a career in robotics.

The students will be able to earn certifications on the types of robots found in factories and medical facilities. They’ll be able to continue training in a program at Washburn University.
