August 1-5, 9:00am-12:30pm
The Art, Robotics & Technology for Youth summer robot workshop offers middle school children (10-13 years old) an amazing opportunity to learn and experiment with robot art projects! Students will create and build unique working robots which will participate in and “perform” tasks and activities. Students will be carefully supervised by Debra Burhans (Associate Prof., Canisius College) and a team of engineers and artists to encourage their growth and creativity. The workshop will culminate in a presentation of the student robot projects on Friday at 11:00am in the lobby of Science Hall at Canisius College.
New this year for returning and more advanced students is a progressive, parallel track designed by Nils Napp (Asst. Prof., Univ. at Buffalo) and Karthik Dantu (Asst. Prof., Univ. at Buffalo) to expand and build on a student’s existing knowledge. They can start where they left off last year and continue to explore the possibilities of robotics in art and life!
In collaboration with the senior design group in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Techne is pleased to announce that the Trekker will appear soon with a new permanent solar-powered electrical system. UB faculty, staff, and students interested in using the Trekker should contact the institute at firstname.lastname@example.org.
