  • IHMC Robotics Lab Open House, IHMC

    To celebrate National Robotics Week, IHMC's Robotics researchers will welcome the public on April 9th to an Open House event in hopes of inspiring young people to seek out careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The family-friendly event encouraged scientific discovery through hands-on activities, challenges, and demonstrations while providing the opportunity to learn about robots from IHMC's researchers and educators. Last year, roughly 900 people from the local community walked through the lab during the open house, including 475 children. Visitors touring the lab had a chance to operate the Atlas robot through Dynamixel arms that scooped candy down a chute to them, as well as run down the street alongside the HexRunner fast-running prototypes. NASA-IHMC’s X1 Exoskeleton was on display, giving visitors a look into a mobility assistance device for rehabilitation and exercise. The MicroAirVehicle team also had their quadcopters flying. This year will include a new and improved Atlas robot, NASA-IHMC's X1, Grasshopper, MAVs, and others for a fun-filled night of hands-on robot demos.

  • 2015 Florida REGIONAL ROV Competition, Northwest Pool

    The MATE ROV competition is about student learning. It is designed to be an event that challenges students to apply the physics, math, electronics, and engineering skills they are learning in the classroom to solving problems from the marine workplace. Mentors (teachers, parents, working professionals) are expected to limit their input to educational and inspirational roles and encouraged to focus on the benefits of the learning process and not simply on “winning” the competition.
