Build a robot, draw a robot, code a robot with your friends. There are no rules other then to share the excitement of robotics with your friends, family, or community. Share with us how you will be celebrating!
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.

ME Special Seminar | Biologically Inspired Soft Mechanisms in Robotic
Incredible biological mechanisms have emerged through evolution, and provide a wellspring of inspiration for engineers. One promising area emerging from biological inspiration is the design of mechanisms and robots made of compliant materials, as part of a larger field of research in “soft robotics.” In this talk, the topics of designing soft biologically inspired mechanisms will be presented in two case studies: mechanical adhesives and soft wearable sensors.

It is an inexpensive team project designed to engage High School boys and girls in a 2 to 4 month activity that closely resembles the work a graduate engineer would be doing in the “real world”. They build a two or four leg robot during the months before the Challenge. On the day of the Challenge they will run their robot down a track for time. They also have to create a written report detailing their project and make an oral presentation to a group of judges from the local engineering community. The event is held on Saturday April 5 from 9:00 am to 2 pm and Sunday April 6 from 12 to 3

Robot Fest is an annual event for anyone interested in the creative use of technology. We welcome all roboticists, hackers, artists, hobbyists and makers of any age who have the unquenchable urge to develop and create new, previously unseen forms from lifeless electronics, fabrics and mechanical parts. Join the fun and excitement with hands-on exhibits, and workshops!
Robot Fest, Saturday, April 12th has a suggested admission donation of $8 for adults, $4 for middle and high-school students.
Elementary school children and younger are still FREE!
And for a little fun, have you noticed our Robot Fest Robot logo is wearing cool sunglasses? Bring your sunglasses and save $1 per person!
