The Port Clinton High School Robotics Class visited Motion Control Robotics, Inc. and with Port Clinton alumnus Caleb Ireland.

The Port Clinton High School Robotics class and the Port Clinton Robo-Skins Robotics Team traveled to Motion Control Robotics Inc. in Fremont for a facility tour. The students from grades 6-12 toured MCRI’s recently completed facility, observing many robots more than twice their size.

The students, and teacher Bobby Good, learned how MCRI works with its customers to develop robotics solutions for their manufacturing customers. There was a special moment on the tour when students observed Caleb Ireland programming a FANUC robot for a well-known candy manufacturer.

Ireland is a Port Clinton High School alumnus and was co-founder of the Port Clinton Robo-Skins. Ireland was able to take time to speak with the students about his career in robotics. In 2013, he and six other Port Clinton students started the Robo-Skins. The team traveled to Fargo, N.D. twice to compete against teams from across America during the four years Ireland was in high school, along with advisor Good.

Ireland started as an Electrical Engineering Co-Op with MCRI in 2017 and is now a robot programmer and has earned several credentials from FANUC Robotics Company since starting his career at MCRI.

Caleb and his brother, Dylan Ireland, another co-founder of the Robo-Skins, continue participating with the Robo-Skins now as industry mentors giving back to their alma mater. Bobby Good is Port Clinton’s Robotics Class Instructor and Robo-Skins Advisor.
