2nd Annual Notre Dame National Robotics Week (NDNRW) Exhibition ,
University of Notre Dame
You’ve probably heard of R2D2 and C-3PO, the robots from “Star Wars,” or the Transformers, an alien robotic race featured in another movie. But robots are so much more than what you see on the big screen.
Join us at the Notre Dame Stepan Center on Sunday, April 14, from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to celebrate National Robotics Week and learn more about the fantastic things that robots can do.
See robotic football players, play games with autonomous robots, and find out more about the incredible things robots and sensors can do — from drawing and playing music to helping with autism and stroke therapies. You can even talk to the students who are helping make it happen!
