Alabama Robotics Technology Park (RTP) partners with Oxford High School Summer Industrial Robotics Bootcamp

Oxford High School Summer Industrial Robotics Bootcamp partners with Alabama Robotics Technology Park (RTP) and AIDT, Alabama’s workforce training agency, to kick off statewide K12 workforce development initiative.



OHS is serving as the pilot school for a statewide K12 initiative led by RTP and AIDT to prepare students for careers in robotics and automation. This summer’s robotics camp will be held in Oxford High School’s Modern Manufacturing building and will be the first of many educational programs designed to provide high school students with hands-on experiences in robotic handling and programming. Participants will have the opportunity to program robots to complete modern manufacturing tasks, engage in team-based projects and interact with industry professionals.

“With the increasing demand and lucrative salaries in robotics and automation, this bootcamp addresses a critical need in today’s job market. AIDT and RTP are thrilled about this initiative and look forward to collaborating with our future workforce.”

Ed Castile, Executive Director of AIDT
