Tech Savvy 2010 Robotics Workshop

On March 13, 2010, working together with AAUW Buffalo Branch, The Automation, Robotics, & Mechatronics Laboratory hosted a Robotics Workshop for "Tech Savvy 5: Tapping into our Technological Future" for girls in grades 9 - 12 in the Western New York region on March 13, 2010. Approximate 36 students (in 3 sessions) attended our workshop entitled "Haptics: The Touchy-Feely Side of Robotics" this year (download PPT slides: here).

The workshop, consisting of presentations followed by 3 hands-on demos, allowing the students to explore use of different haptics devices, expose them to the multiple applications and even program sample motions of a mobile robot (a first programming experience for many of them).
