St. Rita’s to Host Robotics Student Experience

(Lima, October 26, 2016) On Friday, October 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., more than 145 students from 10 area schools will join St. Rita’s for our Robotics Student Experience. Students will meet in our Auxiliary Conference Center located at 718 W. Market. Lima, Ohio 45801.

The Robotics Student Experience is an event that allows local high school students who are involved in their school’s robotics program or just interested in a future in robotics to undergo a hands-on learning experience. The event is broken up into six stations where students will get to see and learn about: St. Rita’s Pharmacy Robot, da Vinci robot hands-on experience (main lobby), Lima YMCA Bean Bot demonstration and interaction, and University of Northwestern Ohio Robotics.

“This is a great opportunity to get people together who have a genuine interest in robotics,” said Randy Buss, Outreach Marketing Manager at St. Rita’s. “We’re excited to bring these students here to experience and learn more about this technology.”

In addition to seeing robots and learning about this type of technology, students will have the opportunity to network with St. Rita’s robotic surgery team including Dr. Craig Nicholson, Urologist at St. Rita’s. They will also learn about future technology advancements and gather information about how robotics are used in the manufacturing industry today.

We look forward to hosting these students and providing a hands-on learning approach about robotics.
