BEDFORD, Mass. -- National Robotics Week is a week-long series of events and activities aimed at increasing public awareness of the growing importance of robotics and the tremendous impact that it will have on the future. Established by Congress and iRobot in 2010, it is taking place until April 10, 2016.
Led by founder and lead organizer iRobot, along with support from a partner advisory council, the family-friendly week seeks to inspire involvement, educate participants and celebrate robotics and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-related fields (STEM) through robotics events at schools, libraries and universities as well as contests, competitions and other learning focused activities.
“When you successfully link fun experiences to education, it makes a world of difference in getting kids interested in learning and understanding the fundamentals of science and math,” said Anthony ‘Mr. Roboto’ Nunez, CEO, Infamous Robotics LLC.
