An event dedicated exclusively to teachers and advisors in the STEM field, especially robotics, who would like to participate in several robotics and programming “Dem-Its” (we show it) and “Do-Its” (you do-it).
Several technologies will be on parade, and in addition, we will host a tour of our campus and share information about several competitions we host for high school and middle school students.

Your instructor, Dr. Carlotta Berry, will:
Describe (and invite you to attend) the ROSE-BUD SPARK! design competition held every spring at Rose-Hulman.
Give you a brief introduction to robotics, engineering, and graphical programming.
Lead you in a hands-on experience working in teams of 2 to program a Scribbler robot to draw, dance and play music!
Your instructor, Dr. David Mutchler, will:
Describe Botball and explain how your school can form a team. Botball is notable among the various robotics competitions in that it is the only one in which the robots are completely autonomous — no remote-control! This restriction requires that students do careful engineering design with a strong emphasis on the software development (programming) side of robotics.
Lead you in a hands-on, team experience in which you design, build and program a robot from way-cool equipment: Roomba Robots, high-powered controllers, color cameras, lots of motors and sensors, and more! (Actually, that is what your school's team will do over 3 months, but you will get a taste of much of it during this workshop.)
Your instructor, Dr. Marc Herniter, will give you a taste of the workshop described to the right:
