National Robotics week is coming up! This year on April 8th, 2014, our members will be working with the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) to provide tour guides for the campus Open House. During the day, school groups come to campus to see various robotics labs across campus from the IRIM(2nd floor of the College of Computing building) to GTRI to the Heath Systems Institute.
