RI Robot Block Party Returns in 2017
Date: April 30, 2017
Pizzitola Sports Center (235 Hope Street)
Rhode Island Robot Block Party, an expo founded by the Rhode Island Students of the Future in partnership with the Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative and the Department of Computer Science, highlights the innovation of our state’s robotic community. Bringing together industry, universities, community organizations, and K-12 schools, it’s open to the public and includes numerous pieces of robotic equipment that range from ocean exploration devices to animatronic toys. The event is presented by the Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative at Brown University and Rhode Island Students of the Future, and it was a Rhode Island Monthly Editor’s Choice “Best of” Award winner in 2015. See photos from the last dynamic event and check out last year’s exhibits and demonstrations.
“Robotics technology will fuel a broad array of products and solutions in manufacturing, health care, agriculture, national defense, and transportation. Robots are also an engaging way for young students to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math . . . Robot Block Party is a fun way to build the skills that prepare our students for a 21st century workforce.”
— Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo
