Happy National Robotics Week! This week robot-related activities, events, and talks are happening all across the US. Are you attending any events near you? 

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.

The week also features the Olympics of Robots: RoboGames! One of the world’s largest robot competition will be held at Pleasanton, California on April 8th-10th.  You can watch videos highlights from previous years on their website.

It’s a solid week filled with great robot events. Here’s a brief snapshot of a few events happening coast-to-coast. Which events are you planning to attend?

Visit the website to see the full list of all upcoming events.


Silicon Valley Regional presented by Google.org, San Jose State University

Come and experience first hand the excitement of a FIRST® Robotics Competition event! Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind™. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2016 challenge, FIRST STRONGHOLD. In FIRST STRONGHOLD, two Alliances of three robots each are on a Quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower. Robots score points by breaching opponents’ defences and scoring boulders through goals in the opposing tower. During the final 20 seconds of the Quest, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower to capture it. More information.
