We encourage you to host a virtual event, or celebrate at home with your family group. Please check the state guidelines before considering a Robotics Week event.
Current Filters: Pennsylvania 2020 Clear All
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!
As part of a FIRST® team, kids apply math and science knowledge, solve problems, make decisions, communicate complex ideas, collaborate as part of a team, exercise leadership, manage resources, create and execute business plans – all essential skills in any successful technological enterprise.
FIRST® competitions and tournaments are celebrations by which communities convey the importance of their students’ achievements in science and technology. FIRST® celebrations are fun, energetic and filled with excitement.

Mini Maker Faires are one‐day, family‐friendly events that celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology projects and the Do‐It‐Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for resourceful, creative people who like to tinker and love to make things. Craftsmen, artisans, performers, homesteaders, crafters, inventors, thinkers and doers are welcome to apply to be Makers. The Faire will showcase cutting edge technology such as 3D printing and robotics, but also have more traditional trades such as woodworking, fine arts, and sewing crafts.

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Glimpse the future and get inspired!

The Sea Air & Land Challenge, nicknamed the SeAL Challenge, is an Office of Naval Research Sponsored STEM initiative in which teams of high school students learn about the engineering process by creating a robotic system that will be used to compete in challenges which mimic missions encountered by the military and first responders. The students work during spring semester, in either classes or after school groups, to design and develop the robotic systems; this could be a submersible for the underwater Sea Challenge, a drone for the Air Challenge, or a land rover for the Land Challenge. On Challenge Day, the teams of students come together to compete and determine whose design best meets the needs of the mission!

The rapid advances in AI have made it possible to leverage AI techniques to address some of the most challenging problems faced by society. Indeed, there is a growing interest in this topic in the AI community in the past few years. However, AI researchers often find themselves without a clear path from addressing fundamental research problems to real-world deployment and positive real-world impact. The 2020 CMU AI and Social Good Symposium aims to address these challenges by bringing together AI researchers and social impact leaders to present their ideas and applications for maximizing the social good.
