DailyDirt: National Robotics Week -- Save The Bots!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The third annual National Robotics Week is currently underway, if you didn't get the memo. The second week of April was officially designated for robotics in 2010 by House Resolution 1055. If you haven't hugged your robot today, it's about time you did, perhaps. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Don't forget the FIRST robotics competitions going on at this time of year! It is amazing to see what high schoolers have come up with in response to a challenge.

    Re: FRC

    Having participated in FIRST robotics as a student for the past 4.5 years, I can't say enough about how great a program it is. I just booked my flight to the Championships in St. Louis April 25-28.

    Good luck on the competition (if you're still in it, not just an observer)!
