National Robotics Week 2015!

National Robotics Week 2015

Are you ready for National Robotics Week 2015? The sixth annual National Robotics Week event will be held April 4-12, 2015. RoboWeek 2014 was amazing and 2015 promises to be even better! Activities can be small, large, and everything in between. Check out our activity ideas below, think about what your group might like to do and help make 2015 our best year ever.

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

Robot Trading Cards

Introduced in 2014, we have something special for you: iRobot teamed up with IEEE Spectrum and Georgia Tech’s Institute for Robotics & Intelligent Machines (IRIM) to create a set of robot trading cards!

This national deck features ten famous robots developed by companies and researchers in the U.S. If your favorite robot is not included, don’t worry—we plan to make more cards next year. In the meantime, don’t forget about IEEE Spectrum’s award winning, internationally acclaimed Robots for iPad app, which you can get for FREE on iTunes.

Just click on the link to see the coaches, stats, and fun facts for the hottest robot teams around. All that’s missing in these dynamic decks is gum!
