We are excited to host our First National Robotics Week at our new school site. This will be a first for our toddlers and our preschoolers are ready to go. A variety of robots and activities will be available to support children discover answers to questions during their play. "What is a robot?" "What does it look like?" "What does it do?" "How does it do it?" We will be exploring with Roombas, draw bots, mouse bot, ozobots and irobot root. Age appropriate literature about robots will also be available.

How can we achieve an inclusive robotics industry? Let's have an UNCONFERENCE to talk about challenges and actions.
Robotics can improve the world, but the robotics industry needs improving. First, we need many more people to get involved. Celebrations of robotics like the US National Robotics Week coming up on April 3-12 aim to increase the number of people (particularly women and underrepresented groups) aspiring to careers in robotics. But we lose women and minorities from the field faster than we add them. So until we’ve addressed the underlying reasons why robotics lacks diversity, while other fields have changed significantly, until we’ve developed an actionable agenda, then we won’t have an inclusive robotics industry.
An inclusive robotics industry will be more innovative, but it is harder to achieve. Let’s continue working towards this goal by coming together for an unconference to:
Share our stories
Find common ground
Explore the issues
Relate successes and best practices
See what works in other places
What is an UNCONFERENCE?
An unconference is a participant-driven meeting, organized, structured and led by the people attending it. There are no powerpoints, no speakers, no preset agenda. You have the mic.
