Georgia Tech National Robotics Week Open House and Tours,
Georgia Institute of Technology
The eighth annual National Robotics Week event will be held April 8-16, 2017. Georgia Tech’s open house will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 13.
Since the launch of National Robotics Week in 2010, Georgia Tech has participated annually in the event by sponsoring an open house and conducting lab tours and robot demonstrations for middle and high school students and other members of the community.
Sponsored by Georgia Tech’s Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM), our 2017 event promises to be even more exciting than last year, including demos of new robots that have not been featured in previous years.
All participants in the morning tours should check in at the registration area, located in the atrium of the Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building (ES&T). The Ford ES&T Bldg. is one of four buildings in Georgia Tech’s Biotechnology Campus, located on the corner of Ferst Drive and Atlantic Drive. Signs will be posted to guide participants to the building.
Guests attending both the morning and afternoon sessions will tour different robotics labs; the sessions are not duplicates.
