Nine members of the Aiken Robotics Club (including some of the 2010 International FIRST Tech Competition winners) are today's featured guests.
Topics: How robot building, designing and international competitions motivate students to greater academic activity and encourages them to cooperative team building. Also how--by being a roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty activity--it's not just for the bookish, but also for kids who enjoy power tools.
Hosted by Stephen Euin Cobb, this is the September 1, 2010 episode of The Future And You. [Running time: 40 minutes]
This interview was recorded on July 17, 2010 at the University of South Carolina at the B.I.T. (Business, Innovation and Technology) Expo. The Aiken Robotics Club was prominently featured at the Expo, were they provided demonstrations of many of the robots they had built, including the one that won them the world championship title.
