On Saturday, September 19, 2009, WSU’s College of Engineering will offer a free robotics workshop to parents and teachers who are interested in coaching a robotics team to compete in the 2010 Shocker MINDSTORMS Challenge on March 6, 2010.
The workshop will be held on the WSU campus in the Engineering Research Building Lobby from 9:00am-3:00pm. Steve Smith, who has coached a robotics team for the last 8 years, will introduce attendees to the LEGO NXT equipment and software, and talk about his experiences in forming a team and preparing them for the competition.
Robotics kits and laptops will be provided for the workshop. Space is limited and registration is required. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis, but preference will be given to individuals interested in starting a robotics team, or expanding a current robotics program in preparation for the 2010 MINDSTORMS Challenge.
A flyer you may print and distribute to anyone interested is located at the website.
