German KUKA youBot Store has announced a new initiative to promote education in mobile manipulation. Research groups and labs in universities and public research facilities are invited to organize an one-week programming marathon (“hackathon”) for under-graduate or graduate students around mobile manipulation at large.

Participants will get a KUKA youBot on a loan basis *free of cost* for a period of four weeks. They will only have to cover the cost for shipping and insurance of the youBot and for hosting a group of students in their labs.

The youBot HACKATHONS organized in Germany during the second European Robotics Week in 2012 attracted around 40 undergraduate students at hackathons at the Bonn-Rhine-Sieg University of Applied Science,  at the Institute for Software & Systems Engineering, Augsburg University and at the Bundeswehr University in Munich.

For more information about the project, please visit the KUKA youBot store website
