Welcome to Gakuto Club

We are a STEM Community club and a training center in wheeling, IL.

In today’s world, technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace, and industries are evolving daily. In such a dynamic environment, STEM education becomes crucial to shaping the next generation’s minds, empowering them to lead and innovate in the future. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the resources and opportunities to pursue STEM education, especially in underprivileged communities.

That’s where Gakuto Club comes in, a non-profit 501C3 STEM organization located at 311 Egidi Drive in Wheeling. Gakuto Club’s mission is to provide STEM education to students and young adults, regardless of socioeconomic background. We aim to inspire and engage students in STEM-related fields by introducing them to real-world applications and hands-on training.

Our mission is to provide STEM education to all industry enthusiasts in our community.

Gakuto Club’s vision would not have been possible without the support of four remarkable companies. Precision Zone Inc., GennFlex Inc., Yaskawa America, and Knuth Machine Tools came together to help fund Gakuto Club and provide them with state-of-the-art training systems.

GennFlex Inc., the OEM of STEM training systems, provided Gakuto Club with curriculum, training, and personnel support. Their expertise in designing and delivering STEM training systems has helped Gakuto Club create a dynamic and engaging curriculum for students.

Knuth Machine Tools, a renowned manufacturer of machine tools and accessories, supported Gakuto Club by donating their latest equipment. The equipment includes CNC machines, lathes, mills, and other tools, which enable students to learn and experiment with metalworking and machining.

Precision Zone Inc., a robotics integrator, industrial automation repair center, and distributor of industrial electronics, was instrumental in donating automation labs equipped with cutting-edge industrial electronics, and components for hands-on training in automation and control.

Yaskawa America, a leading manufacturer of industrial robots, motion control, and drives, assisted Gakuto Club in establishing the "Factory of the Future" equipped with Yaskawa's most advanced robots and motion control systems for students to learn robotics and automation in a real-world setting.

The collaboration between these companies has had a significant impact on Gakuto Club’s mission. Their support has helped Gakuto Club equip their facility with some of the most advanced training systems, providing students with opportunities they might not have otherwise had. The local Wheeling government and Chamber of Commerce have also been instrumental in this effort.

In conclusion, it is heartening to see how companies are coming together to support the next generation’s education and growth. It is crucial that we continue to invest in STEM education, not just for the individual’s benefit but for the benefit of society as a whole. The collective efforts of Precision Zone Inc., GennFlex Inc., Yaskawa America, and Knuth Machine Tools, with the support of local government and the Chamber of Commerce, serve as an inspiring example of how we can work together to create a better future for all.
