Free "Summer with Siemens Workshops"

Siemens Industry, Inc. and Siemens Cooperates with Education (SCE) is proud to offer “Summer with Siemens Workshops” to all public education teaching professionals. These three-day, hands-on, technical workshops are tuition free and will introduce school instructors from all levels to core industrial automation technologies.

Most workshops focus on Siemens S7-1200 PLC and touch panel display featuring Siemens STEP 7 TIA Portal software. All students will receive a starter-kit from Siemens including PLC and software. We have also added an advanced workshop and Variable Frequency Drives workshops!

Qualified educators should register early as workshops fill quickly and seating is limited!

Preparing students for industry

SCE has teamed up with Edge Factor to create a series of videos to help students across the country learn more about the latest technology used in today’s manufacturing industries.

Topics include automation, robotics, machining and much more! Instructors are playing these short videos at the beginning of their classes to introduce technology concepts to students and provide real-life examples of technology in action.
