Are you or your child in High School in the Memphis area and want to join an FRC Robotics Team? Check out the announcement below and RSVP HERE:
Ran across THIS WEBSITE with videos related to Engineering for STEM Educators. Thought I would share. Unfortunately it is a paid site, but does offer a free trial.

Darpa Subterranean Challenge:
After Laikago, Unitree Robotics is now introducing AlienGo, which is looking mighty spry:
The majority of soft robots today rely on external power and control, keeping them tethered to off-board systems or rigged with hard components. Now, researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Caltech have developed soft robotic systems, inspired by origami, that can move and change shape in response to external stimuli, paving the way for fully untethered soft robots.
I like the third project the best!
My only criticism of all the projects is their use of glue on circuit boards (can we say “standoffs”).
