Middle and high school students will show their skills in robotics and problem-solving while teachers, educators, researchers and policymakers discuss how to use computing, technology, engineering and robotics in K-14 education at the second annual UC Davis C-STEM Day, Saturday, May 5. More information about the event can be found at the UC Davis Website.
A robotics company started by a UC Davis engineering professor and his former graduate student has been awarded a second round of funding from the National Science Foundation small business innovation research program. The grant provides at least $500,000 over the next two years to Barobo, based in West Sacramento, with potential for up to another $500,000 in matching funds if the company can make sales and attract venture capital. “We are very excited about receiving this gr
RoboPlay Competitions (http://c-stem.ucdavis.edu/roboplay), organized by the UC Davis C-STEM Center, are open-ended design challenges that integrate computer programming and math with elements of writing, art, music, choreography, design, and film making. Students in middle and high schools will write computer programs to create robot dances and robot shows as well as complete robot challenges using the modular robot Mobot from Barobo, Inc. RoboPlay Competitions are designed
