Virtual Robotics Demonstration
hosted by the Baylor Women's Council of Waco
Saturday, March 27 | 10:30 a.m.
What makes a robot "smart?" How are they programmed to complete certain tasks? Learn answers to these questions and more with a behind-the-scenes look at one of Baylor University's cutting-edge robotics labs.
Dr. Scott Koziol will introduce us to autonomous mobile robots in his lab during this fun, virtual presentation! Viewers will see robots in action and participate in a hands-on virtual activity (intended for ages 8 and older).
For the two-person Robotics activity, you will need a marker or pen and 25 pieces of paper(construction or copy paper), notecards, or index cards. Please be in a large space where you will have room to spread out the paper on the ground. You can even do this in your garage!
Proceeds of this virtual event support the Baylor Women's Council scholarship fund.
Registration has closed.
