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.

The Robotics Club at UCF will be hosting a small event at our Lab in Partnership II near the UCF Campus displaying and demoing our autonomous robots. Not all are built, and none are finished and polished, however you can see how we test and operate our vehicles and experience our competing robots first hand.

The Mini-Urban Challenge is a national competition sponsored by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory and the Doolittle Institute that challenges high school students to design and operate a robotic car to autonomously navigate a model city. The cars are developed using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education kits that are provided to high school teams free of charge.

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.
