The 2012 Global Conference on Educational Robotics is currently being held in Honolulu for the week of July 18 through July 22, 2012. We are very excited to have such a wonderful conference in Hawaii.
There is quite an impressive list of speakers at this year’s conference from all over the world. This conference in the past has been held in California, Illinois and Virginia, we feel very lucky to have it come to Honolulu.
More than 56 middle and high school aged robotics students from all over the world, including Austria, New England, and Qatar are gathering this week at the Hawaii Convention Center. To view images from the conference shared by the Honolulu Star Advertiser, please click here.
We hope to have more conference such as this make their way to Hawaii. Hawaii has a very international appeal and is a true untapped resource for the STEM community.
To all of the student attendees we would like to share a powerful quote from Fredi Lajvardi, a FIRST Robotics coach, “Dream big, be creative, and solve problems”.
Robotics + Students = Success. We found this blog, Kid Engineer!, with actual quotes from elementary robotics students and it really gives a glimpse into the child mind and how they think about and admire robotics.
