Event List

The Robot Zoo Exhibit @The Children's Museum of the Upstate, The Children's Museum of the Upstate
This 2,500-square-foot exhibit reveals the magic of nature as a master engineer. Three robot animals and seven hands-on activities illustrate fascinating real-life characteristics, such as how a chameleon changes colors and a fly walks on the ceiling. The larger-than-life-size animated robots include a chameleon and a platypus. Also featured is a house fly with a 3-foot wingspread. Machinery in the robot animals simulates the body parts of their real-life counterparts. In the robot animals, muscles become pistons, intestines become filtering pipes and brains become computers. Sensory activities include “Swat the Fly,” a test of the visitor’s reaction time (one-twelfth as fast as a house fly’s), and “Sticky Feet,” where visitors wearing special hand and knee pads can try to stick like flies to a sloped surface. Triggering the “Tongue Gun” demonstrates how a real chameleon shoots out its long, sticky-tipped tongue to reel in a meal. THE MUSEUM IS NOT OPEN MONDAYS

Join us for more fun with robots! Introductions and "show and tell" begins at 6 PM. Each month, we will have a different Featured Project that will be revealed at the meet-up for you to play with. Each Featured Project is something very simple, designed to be approachable for people of all ages and skill levels. We hope these projects inspire inquiry and creativity, but they are always optional. If you're interested in participating in the Featured Project, you may occasionally be asked to bring materials. We will be building real live (simple) robots this time around! Participants will *not* be able to bring the finished robot home, but we'll provide you with a list of materials/instructions if you'd like to create your own at home.

Artisan's Asylum Intro to Robotics, Artisan's Asylum
Intro to Robotics: Programming a Line-Following & Maze Solving Robot his class will go over the basics of robotics, Arduino, and programming. We will be using Sparki: http://arcbotics.com/products/sparki/, an open source robotics platform that works with the Arduino micro-controller development environment. Five robots will be provided to the class, so you will not have to purchase your own robot, and we'll be able to get started on making them move right away. We'll go over the basics of programming, and then build on that to solve problems. You'll see how few behaviors are needed to do something like following a line, but how much more quickly you can solve the same problem with a bit of processing. We'll continue to build upon those skills until we've got robots that can find their way out of a maze. There will be additional lab times provided for students that wish to have access to a Sparki outside of the regular class time. Both a weekday lab time, and a weekend lab time will be provided.

We Robot 2014: Risks & Opportunities, University of Miami School of law
We Robot 2014: "Risks & Opportunities” is a conference at the intersection of the law, policy, and technology of robotics. Participants include academics, practitioners, and developers in the form of scholarly papers or presentations of relevant projects. Through this interdisciplinary gathering, we are encouraging conversations between the people designing, building, and deploying robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots will operate. Topics include: * Risks and opportunities of robot deployment in the workplace, the home, and other contexts where robots and humans work side-by-side. * Issues related to software-only systems such as automated trading agents. * Regulatory and licensing issues raised by robots in the home, the office, in public spaces (e.g. roads), and in specialized environments such as hospitals. * Design of legal rules that will strike the right balance between encouraging innovation and safety, particularly in the context of autonomous robots. * Issues of legal or moral responsibility, e.g. relating to autonomous robots or robots capable of exhibiting emergent behavior. * Usage of robots in public safety and military contexts. * Privacy issues relating to data collection by robots, either built for that purpose or incidental to other tasks. * Intellectual property challenges relating to robotics as a nascent industry, to works or inventions created by robots, or otherwise peculiar to robotics. * Issues arising from automation of professional tasks such as unauthorized practice of law or medicine. * How legal scholars should think about robots, and how roboticists should think about the legal code.

IEEE NJ Coast Robot Challenge, Brookdale Community College
The event involves a group of (usually 4 or 5) High School STEM students that organize, create, test, fabricate and race their robot on a track for competition at the First IEEE NJ Coast Robot Competition this April 5th, 2014. The students begin by creating a theme for their team/robot with a carrying case and a flag. Most of the students dress up in costumes in line with their theme. They follow sketches, plan and keep a log for their entire project to aid them with a written report that will detail their experience, including problems encountered and solutions. Now they compete by racing their Robot on a 6-inch track with two 1/2 in hurdles and finish the day with an Oral report in front of the judges. The time it takes to build the robot and complete their project varies, depending on the time the students devote to their project. The students are given their robot in January, so that they can be ready for the annual April Robot Competition. It generally can take 3 hours a week for 3 months to complete. The teams go through three judged events: Fabrication, Oral and Track. The written report is handed in a week before the actual Race Day. The Teams first go to Fabrication table where the construction of their robot is checked to ensure it fits the documented criteria from the manual. A trial run is done at the fabrication table with their robot, where each team member controls one leg of the robot. If the robot is ready to run, they go to track. If not, they are allowed to go to the Pit, where they receive guidance in getting their robot ready to compete. They are allowed to go to the pit even when they are on track if something goes wrong. After the Robot walks the whole track. They do an Oral presentation where they are judged on teamwork, creativity, ingenuity, problem solving and learning lessons. Inspiration for this event is by the Baltimore Chapter of IEEE (http://www.robotchallenge.com/), who has been sponsoring Robot Challenge Events for about 18 years.

The Secret Life of Robots, SPACE
The exhibition by artist Toby Atticus Fraley features a dozen scenes of robots in everyday scenarios, which are domestic vignettes presenting an unpolished look into the unseen, and often mundane, lives of robots. Approximately 4- to 5-feet-tall, the robots are constructed from vintage thermoses, picnic coolers, and various found objects. Some robots include animatronic elements and custom built electronics packages that control illuminated elements, such as their eyes and accent lights. Peaking into the daily activities of a typical robot through various stages of their lifespan reveals a glimpse of our lives through the looking-glass. Through April 27, 2014

We have lots of classes in robotics throughout April. Check our calendar and course listing for the full selection. On April 5 and 12 we have a Lego robotics class for everyone from ages 2-15. Our classes focus on the basics for doing "good science." We practice accurate measurements, variable control, result verification, hypothesizing, and testing. Students explore the concepts for themselves, actually seeing how things work. Based on the understanding that different age groups learn differently, our instructional levels reinforce the basic science concepts and pair them with age-appropriate content. We're not just about playing with LEGO® building elements, we use those to engineer solutions to problems. The fun comes with the LEGO building, of course, but the students are surprised to find that the engineering and science is just as fun
