Friday, April 13th: Open House at IHMC

To celebrate the ninth annual National Robotics Week, IHMC's Robotics researchers will welcome the public on April 13th for an Open House event in hopes of inspiring young people to seek out careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The family-friendly event encourages scientific discovery through hands-on activities, challenges, and demonstrations while providing the opportunity to learn about robots from IHMC's researchers and educators.

Established by Congress in 2010 to raise awareness about robots and their important role in shaping the future of education, industry, and the U.S. economy, National Robotics Week brings together students, educators, and influencers who share a passion for robots and technology. Headed by founder and lead organizer, iRobot, along with support from IHMC and robot enthusiasts throughout the country, the tech-heavy week is all about celebrating the United States as a leader in robots technology development, educating the public about how robotics technology impacts society, and inspiring students of all ages to pursue careers in robotics and other science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related careers. In all, a record 225 events focused on ‘everything robots’ in 50 states. For more information about National Robotics Week, go to: http://www.nationalroboticsweek.org.
