Hawaii Micro Robotics Bipedal Robot Workshop

The 2nd Hawaii Micro Robotics Bipedal Robot Workshop will be held August 25-26 at Hawaii Community College in Hilo. The workshop is designed to stimulate high technology education and assist in creating a technically capable workforce by developing the infrastructure and skill sets necessary to support high technology robotics-based activities as programs for potentially larger efforts, and, as a result, increasing the number of students who have access to micro robotics, a program that is transitional between high school and college.

Elementary (grades 5, 6, enrichment), middle, and high school teachers with school robotics teams are eligible to participate in the workshop. The cost is $25 per teacher or adult mentor and includes 2 lunches. A bipedal kit will be provided for each registered participant and participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer for programming their biped robot, and, if possible, an Android phone or tablet.

The Hilo Hawaiian Hotel has a special rate of $92 per night for a room that accommodates up to 4 people (a reservation form can be found and downloaded at the bottom of the page).

The event is sponsored by Friends of Hawai'i Robotics, University of Hawai'i Hawai'i Community College, Waiakea High Robotics, Hawai'i Nasa Space Grant Consortium, and Easybotics. Further details and the application form can be found below.
