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.

  • The New Wave of Robot Grasping, Tempo Automation

    Presenting special guest speaker, Ken Goldberg from UC Berkeley AUTOLAB, plus an expert panel including; Jeff McAlvay from Tempo Automation Dr Harsha Prahlad from Grabit Paul Ekas from Sake Robotics The New Wave in Robot Grasping Ken Goldberg, UC Berkeley Despite 50 years of research, robots are still remarkably clumsy. I will present what I see as three "waves" in methodology. The first wave, which is still dominant, uses analytic methods based on screw theory and assumes exact knowledge of pose, shape, and other properties (see the 2016 Handbook of Robotics). The relatively recent Second Wave is purely empirical: purely data driven approaches which learn grasp strategies from many examples using techniques such as reinforcement learning and hyperparametric function approximation (Deep Learning). The "New" wave will be hybrid methods that combine analytic models to bootstrap and tune empirical models, where data and code is exchanged via the Cloud using emerging advances in cloud computing, big data, deep learning, and the internet of things. This talk will present an overview and new results from my lab for applications in home decluttering, warehouse order fulfillment, and robot-assisted surgery.

    Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) PA Regional ROV Teams to Participate in Underwater Robotics Challege ****************************************** Local students develop underwater robots and learn how they help to keep our seaports safe at MATE PA ROV Challenge to be held at Villanova University April 15- Villanova, PA –Thirty teams from NY, PA, NJ, MD, and DC are set to compete in the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) PA Challenge’s 8th Annual Student ROV Competition. Remotely Operated Vehicles or ROV’s are tethered underwater robots used to complete tasks in underwater environments. The teams will compete using an ROV they designed and built during the past school year. MATE’s ROV competition encourages students to learn and apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills to complete tasks that simulate real world problems from the ocean workplace. To learn entrepreneurial skills, student teams must form “companies” that produce ROV products to pilot their vehicle to complete tasks such as constructing an underwater “hyperloop” system, sampling sediment for contaminants, and investigating a container that fell from a cargo ship to the seafloor. In addition, teams must prepare technical documentation for their vehicle, make a product presentation to a panel of university and industry judges, and create a marketing display for awards. The top two teams move onto MATE International. For more information contact: V. Vanessa Morris, Regional Coordinator, vmvrobot@gmail.com

  • Robotics with Blockly Professional Development Course, Parallax Inc.

    Join Parallax’s educational team for a hands-on exploration of BlocklyProp—our new implementation of the Google Blockly visual programming language. Learn about robotics and product design using the Propeller multicore microcontroller, ActivityBot robot, sensors, and displays. Parallax’s BlocklyProp system provides a solution for running a class where students can use graphical programming or C. Students who have used Scratch or Blockly for screen programming will pick up this tool quite easily. This flexibility speeds skill acquisition, reduces frustration, and provides a STEM/STEAM learning experience where students can achieve success in a short class period but also develop bigger semester-long projects and designs.
