How Robots Will Impact STEM Learning in Our Schools
According to the United Nations, robotics will be the technological revolution of the 21st century, just as the automobile was at the turn of the 20th century. As populations age, rapid changes in demographics are taking place. The ultimate dream of creating an artificial companion to assist humans is no longer science fiction. It is a realistic response to the needs of an aging society.
To provide the robotics industry with the platform, software, and tools to explore and develop the applications of tomorrow, the NAO, a 58-cm tall, completely programmable, autonomous 5-kg humanoid robot has been developed and made
available to teach STEM Robotics in schools around the nation and the world.
Registration for this event is just $85, and includes all the workshops, continental breakfast and a fabulous buffet lunch. Join us by clicking the Register button.
