FANUC America Teams up with Oakland Schools to Provide Teacher Externships

In the summer of 2018, FANUC America hosted its first-ever externship program for teachers interested in learning more about robotics and automation programming. The 3-week program allowed externship participants to attend courses, where expert instructors provided hands-on training with FANUC products at FANUC America's corporate headquarters in Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Sharon Spencer is an Architecture and Engineering CADD instructor at Lake Orion High School.

FANUC America externship student and high school instructor Sharon Spencer shared her experience in a recent blog post:

"I applied for the three-week FANUC externship because I believe that there needs to be options for students who are interested in areas such as engineering, robotics and manufacturing, but are not planning on attending a four-year college or are not sure what they want to do after high school."

"Because of this, I wanted to gain first-hand experiences and learn what manufacturing is all about so, when I talk to my students, I have a better understanding of the field and what type of people companies are looking to hire.  I also believe having those “real world” experiences provides me with “street cred” in the eyes of my students."
