National Robotics Week 2017 Events

Thank you to everyone who hosted, promoted, and participated in National Robotics Week 2016! With your continuing help, we had over 300 events for Robo Week. The eighth annual National Robotics Week will be held April 8-16, 2017 and promises to be even bigger! Submit your own event!

Host An Event

Remember it can be everything from bringing a robot to the library, to a demo at the science center, to a huge robot carnival! We just want to share the excitement of robotics around the US. If you hosted an event for 2016, thanks for joining us and please tell us about your event here.

2017 Eastern Shore SeaPerch Challenge, UMES
SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

Brazos Valley Regional , University High School
Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2017 challenge entitled FIRST STEAMWORKS. How does it work? Each January, high school teams receive a Kit of Parts comprised of donated items and components worth tens of thousands of dollars. With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

Each January, high school teams receive a Kit of Parts comprised of donated items and components worth tens of thousands of dollars. With limited instructions and working with adult Mentors, students have just six (6) weeks to collaboratively design, build, program and test their robots to meet each season's new engineering challenge. Once these young investors build their robot, the team competes in regional/district events that measure the effectiveness of the robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students. Teams vie for awards and a spot at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, MO where the best-of-the-best come together in late April. College scholarships top some $30+ million annually.

3D Printing Fundamentals SBU, ASU Chandler Innovation Center
Thanks to 3D printing, you can quickly and easily create a physical object from a computer model, literally printing the part as it goes. This is an easy way to prototype your parts before machining or injection molding. In 3D printing fundamentals you will learn how to set up your 3D model for 3D printing. The class will cover different 3D printing settings, troubleshooting, and how to prevent common 3D printing problems.

Laramie Robotics Club, University of Wyoming
Come have fun playing with robots! It's free. Any students middle school through graduate school interested in learning how to program robots should join the fun. Each week we'll teach you how to get a robot to accomplish some goal, such as solving a maze, playing robot tag, following a light, etc. The goal is to simply have fun and learn robotics and programming along the way. Students do not need any technical background. We provide the robots, computers, and will teach you what you need to know. All we ask is that you are excited to learn and can attend most weeks.
