When robot professionals and enthusiasts gather for the 2014 Robotics Alley Conference & Expo on September 16-17 at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest, they’ll be treated to a special showcase of student achievements in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), sponsored by NPC Robotics.
Students of all ages, from grade schools to universities, have been invited to exhibit their robots and technology projects in a dedicated area of the Expo floor. The STEM Showcase will highlight youth robot teams, robotics education programs and other hands-on displays. In addition, the STEM Showcase has expanded in 2014 and will include a Women in STEM panel.
Conference attendees will be able to learn more about STEM education initiatives and university research in the Midwest and beyond. The Showcase is also expected to facilitate connections between student teams and sponsors/mentors, high school students and recruiting universities, and employers and recent/future college graduates.
Students will also have the opportunity to interact with attendees and nationally acclaimed speakers.
The STEM Showcase will take place on Tuesday, September 16, and will be open to the public from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. Groups attending include High Tech Kids, FIRST, Green Girls (7190), and The Works Museum.
