BotsIQ is a workforce development program of the Pittsburgh Chapter National Tooling & Machining Foundation.  It was created and designed to provide a pathway for students to explore rewarding careers in manufacturing.

Through exciting, hands-on, project based learning opportunities, BotsIQ attracts smart, capable young people who love to build things and solve problems – exactly the type of people that will comprise the future manufacturing workforce.

BotsIQ has three overarching goals:

  • To advance STEM education.
  • To provide resources to local schools to develop hands-on technical learning.
  • To link students with industry mentors and promote an understanding of manufacturing and STEM career pathways.

BotsIQ is working to spark student interest in manufacturing careers, address the manufacturing skills gap, and build the industry’s future workforce.
