What do robot makers, battle bot enthusiasts, and programmers love about April? National Robotics Week, of course! Commonly referred to as “RoboWeek”, this weeklong series of events inspires people to get interested in the world of robotics. Established by Congress in 2010, the 9th annual RoboWeek runs April 7th-15th. Last year, there were over 300 events in all 50 states. 2018 is on pace to be even more successful. Created to get students interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related fields. These events also bring attention to the importance of “robo technology” and the robotics industry in the United States. To get into the spirit of #RoboWeek, Studica and fischertechnik Education encourage you to enter the 2018 fischertechnik Robotics Giveaway.*
