Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop will give you a hands-on introduction to the Social Robotics Workshop (SRW). We run the SRW to get kids excited about computer programming by having them program robots to have a personality or mood. This workshop presents basic computer science concepts by focusing both on the core fundamentals of robotics and the role of social interaction in future robot platforms. This workshop engages students with interesting tasks that explore the capabilities and ideas behind robotic platforms. We try to meet students "where they are", allowing them to explore robotic concepts in terms of exercises based around every day real life scenarios. Prior tasks explored in early versions of this workshop included home aides to help with brushing their hair, and robots designed to assist in buying ice cream and fetching it from the freezer. You can do the workshop for your students or have us run it for you!
