Amatrol's STEM Program
Without math and science, there is simply no technology or engineering. Integrating technology into math and science is key to making it attractive to today’s technology savvy students and provide a form of engineering college prep.
Challenge is core to engaging today’s students. Amatrol’s virtual technology grabs student’s interest and leads them to develop STEM knowledge as they travel the road to “How do I get this to work?”
Amatrol’s High School Learning Systems create the need for students to want to learn math and science – they can’t interact with the exciting technology without it. Learning is interactive and challenging, keeping them engaged and wanting to do more. The math and science so desperately needed for 80% of jobs today is a natural outcome.
When students leaving high school prior to graduation were surveyed as to why they left, the most frequent answer was “boredom.” Amatrol’s highly engaging, interactive approach keeps students thinking and problem solving continuously. The curriculum can allow students to go at their own pace, slow or fast, so that boredom is simply not a factor.
STEM is essential for high school students today. The kids are smart, technology savvy, and more demanding of their educational experience than ever before. Challenge them with technology that requires STEM skills and they will engage and learn. Amatrol’s learning systems open the door to a bright future where students with STEM knowledge have many career choices.

Amatrol creates innovative, interactive learning solutions for industry and education to equip people with the skills to master technical systems, solve problems and adapt to a rapidly-changing workplace. Amatrol's learning solutions are designed and built by employees who are experts in their field, integrating the best practices in education and training to deliver knowledge and skills for real jobs.
Amatrol is the world’s leader in skills-based, interactive technical learning. Their learning solutions range from engaging high school students in the learning of basic science and math to teaching hands-on skills in the latest, highly sophisticated motor drives. Amatrol’s learning solutions include interactive multimedia as well as print-based student learning materials, virtual trainers, teacher’s guides, industrial quality hands-on training equipment, and instructor training.
Amatrol designs, develops and manufactures technical learning systems, highly interactive eLearning, hands-on simulators, and more to train tomorrow’s workforce for many diverse industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, packaging, etc. Didactic organizations such as colleges, universities, and high schools use these made-in-the-USA products to teach individuals technical and workplace skills ranging from entry level basic technical skills to advanced technology troubleshooting for both degree and certification preparation. Real world components are used in the training equipment along with in-depth curricula to build the workforce’s next generation.
Amatrol offers a rich array of multimedia and eLearning on a broad array of topics including: power and energy, controls, manufacturing processes, design, fluids, fluid power, thermal, electrical, electrical motors, mechanical, communications, robotics, computer integrated manufacturing, mechatronics, and automation. In addition to learning systems geared toward post-secondary and industrial customers, Amatrol also offers systems specifically designed for high schools.
One of the biggest challenges facing the workforce today is a skilled worker shortage. Because of this, Amatrol is dedicated to providing schools with learning solutions that will cover applicable STEM knowledge and advanced manufacturing topics and skills.
By 2018, the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million unfilled jobs in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) because there will not be enough qualified workers to fill them. STEM is where jobs are today and where the job growth will be in the future.
Through activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum, our programs give students a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning. When students understand how their education is relevant to their lives and future careers, they get excited, and are more successful.
Students gain knowledge and skills in the following STEM areas:
- Engineering design process
- Industry standard 3D modeling software
- Using an engineer’s notebook
- Mechanisms, energy, statics, materials, and kinematics
- Development of residential and commercial properties and structures
- Project research, testing and validation techniques
