Join us for a robotics celebration in conjunction with National Robotics Week. In a full day of activities and presentations, the program will present two themes: robotics and young people, and the current state of robotics in space.
The National Air and Space Museum is proud to partner with several organizations to present this program. These include NASA, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects), and Infamous Robotics, LLC, a private corporation that utilizes curricula it has developed to successfully educate children about Robotics Engineering™ and the related STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields using a hands-on approach.
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Students from five college robotics teams will describe each of their team’s project objectives through commentary and supporting media of their creations.
Robotics Technology Demonstration (Location: Gallery 211)
12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The college robotics teams will demonstrate their projects to the public, and Museum Education staff and Infamous Robotics will perform robotics demonstrations for a younger audience.
