National Robotics Week officially runs from the 5th through the 13th of April.
The fifth annual event shines a spotlight on robots in their many guises, from engaging with school-age children to promote the importance of STEM education with events like robot workshops and projects with LEGOs to academic conferences like the 6th Annual IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications (TePRA) in the Greater Boston Area.
It may be the official closing weekend, but events run well past the 13th, all the way through the end of the month.
From Alaska to New York, events are taking place all across the country. Check the events page of the National Robotics Week website for a full detailed listing of events happening near you.
There’s even a twitter hashtag: #NationalRoboticsWeek.
