Are you ready for National Robotics Week 2013? Mark your calendars for April 6-14. We need more events, more participants and more robots all over the U.S.!
RoboWeek 2012 was a banner year. There were over 160 events in all 50 United States. Events included First Lego League teams demonstrating robots at the local library, tours of University labs, thousands of attendees at Block Parties, and the FIRST Robotics Championships.
The Purpose of National Robotics Week is to:
- Celebrate the US as a leader in robotics technology development
- Educate the public about how robotics technology impacts society, both now and in the future
- Advocate for increased funding for robotics technology research and development
- Inspire students of all ages to pursue careers in robotics and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-related fields
