It's a cornerstone of our lab to share our love of robotics with others... especially children and underrepresented minorities. We seek to inspire the community and cultivate engineering excitement.

For example, students can learn about our GUPPIE underwater robot, and then build their own miniature versions out of water bottles and popsicle sticks. Older students can learn about problem-solving and experiment hands-on with engineering concepts. Whether it's a one-day event, or a summer camp, we love to introduce kids to robotics!

Let's team up! If you would like to partner or utilize resources for an outreach project, please contact us.
