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 demonstrations for middle school and high school students.
More than 400 students participated in Tech's 2013 event held on April 11, with one group traveling from Tennessee to attend. Tours were held in multiple locations, offering participants a chance to learn more about research projects in 16 different robotics labs.
In honor of the 2013 event, IRIM produced a set of baseball-like trading cards featuring some of our most talented and productive players. Download a complete set of all 14 cards to learn more about our robots and reasearchers.
National Robotics Week was established by a U.S. House of Representatives resolution to recognize robotics technology as a pillar of the 21st century and to leverage its ability to inspire technology education.
The fifth annual National Robotics Week event will be held April 5-13, 2014.
