Intelligrated Robotics Lab to host students in celebration of National Robotics Week

Students from Washington University and Missouri University of Science and Technology to tour Alvey Robotics Lab.
April 04, 2013

Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, will host a series of educational events at its St. Louis facility April 8-12. The educational events will commemorate the fourth annual National Robotics Week and focus on building interest in robotics engineering for students of all ages.

Intelligrated will host college students from Washington University and Missouri University of Science and Technology. Visits will include tours of the company’s Alvey Robotics Lab, a 5,050-square-foot research and development facility that focuses on concepting and applying new robotic innovations. Following the tour, students will join Intelligrated engineers for a luncheon, presentation and Q&A session.

Local elementary school students from the Rockwood school district who are currently learning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) principles will also tour the robotics lab, view live demonstrations and interact with Intelligrated engineers.

“We are looking forward to welcoming bright young minds to our facility,” said Ted Clucas, senior vice president of systems operations, Intelligrated. “The demand for robotics engineers is growing and we hope students emerge from this event with a better understanding of the role robotics play in the material handling industry.”

National Robotics Week is a week-long series of events and activities to highlight the growing importance of robotics and their role enabling students to learn important science, technology, engineering and math concepts. In 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives officially designated the second full week in April as National Robotics Week. For more information, visit www.nationalroboticsweek.org.
