On Monday, April 20, the Central High School RoboLancers and the University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Laboratory will be hosting the fifth annual Philly Robotics Expo. The Expo began in 2011 as a way to inform and educate young students about engineering and robotics. This will be the second year that the Expo will be held on UPenn’s campus. Last year’s expo drew around 750 attendees who were able to participate in workshops, attend lectures, and engage in scrimmages between Philadelphia area FIRST Robotics Teams.
The doors of the Singh Center for Nanotechnology will open at 8:00am for registration and the event will run from 9:00 – 3:00 P.M. Members of the RoboLancers will be teaching a workshops on programming and electro-mechanical classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced skill levels. Guest lectures will be given by Gabe Carryon from Prof. Tangorra’s Laboratory for Biological Systems Analysis at Drexel, and Monroe Kennedy and Giuseppe Loianno from Professor Vijay Kumar’s Multi-Robot Systems Lab at Penn. Those that attend will also be afford the unique opportunity to tour Penn’s GRASP Laboratory.
Individuals, school, and community groups that are interested in exploring STEM fields and Robotics are encouraged to sign up and attend this Philly Tech Week event.
