National Robotics week is coming up! This year on April 8th, 2014, our members will be working with the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) to provide tour guides for the campus Open House. During the day, school groups come to campus to see various robotics labs across campus from the IRIM(2nd floor of the College of Computing building) to GTRI to the Heath Systems Institute.

RoboJackets will have a strong presence at this year’s FIRST Robotics Competition Regional Event at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The competition, which will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center from March 27-29, is the first of the season for local FRC teams. This year, RoboJackets has mentored Team 4163, Westlake Roarbotics, and Team 5332, Toaster Tech/ LEADFRC. In addition, more that a dozen RoboJackets volunteers will be helping to run the 3 day contest and ensure that everything goes smoothly. The event is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to spectate.
This Saturday, March 1, RoboJackets members will be judging the Design Award at the VEX State Championship Tournament for Georgia high schools. We’re looking forward to meeting the students and and seeing their designs for this year’s game, Toss Up!
