April 10, 2013 9:45 am - 3:00 pm
Various Georgia Tech Campus Locations

The Purpose of National Robotics Week is to:
  • Celebrate the U.S. as a leader in robotics technology development
  • Educate the public about how robotics technology impacts society, both now and in the future
  • Advocate for increased funding for robotics technology research and development
  • Inspire students of all ages to pursue careers in robotics and other science, technology, engineering, and math-related fields

As part of National Robotics Week 2013, the Robotics & Intelligent Machines Center at Georgia Tech (RIM@GT) will host an open house for high school students on Wednesday, April 10. Please note: Registration for this event is closed.

Please see the downloadable flyer for directions and parking information. A check-in table will be set up outdoors in front of the College of Computing Building (801 Atlantic Drive) to welcome you to the Open House (please follow the signs to the area).

A detailed demo schedule will be available at the check-in table for each group. We will try our best to follow the event schedule below. The morning and afternoon sessions will be different as our robotics labs are spread out in six different buildings, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella in case of rain.

For your convenience, a campus map of the demo labs may be found here.
