KC Robotics, Inc. Partakes in Summer Camp for Robotics Week

Industrial Robotics Company Happy to be Part of Primrose School’s Summer Camp Program

West Chester, OH- KC Robotics, Inc., an industrial robotics company, participated in Primrose School of West Chester's summer camp on July 20.


Primrose School of West Chester's summer camp included a week dedicated to "inventions and robotics." About 25 campers ages six through ten visited KC Robotics' location for about an hour on the Monday morning of July 20.

First, children got a safety brief from KC Robotics technician Steve Tettenhorst. He was called "Safety Steve" for the day. Safety education is an important and necessary aspect of visiting a manufacturing company. Children received safety glasses to wear throughout their time at KC, along with candy and other KC Robotics, Inc. gear.

Children visited three "stations" during their time at KC Robotics. The first station was a series of short videos showing robots working and doing fun activities like dancing. An engineer and project leader, Greg Davis, explained how the robots are able to perform tasks.

At the second station, campers visited a robotic design engineer. Engineer Stephanie Marner explained the process of building robots on a computer before they are physically built.

The third station included actual robot action! Robot Technician Dwayne Smith and robotic expert Erica DeMott from KC Robotics were excited to show off a moving KUKA robot (while the campers stood behind a safety rope, of course).

KC Robotics' small collaboration with a local school turned out to be a huge success. Many students showed interest in robotics and gave positive feedback. KC Robotics believes it has sparked some STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) interests in the minds of some of West Chester's brightest youths.
