The Role of Robotics in Modern STEM and STEAM Education, a Conversation with Experts

The Robotics and STEM Education Evening will showcase a panel of thought leaders and experts in STEM & STEAM education (such as Andra Kye, director at Silicon Valley Robotics) discussing their latest insight around the role of robotics in STEM and STEAM education.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Robotics and Education Global Summit (REGS) presents the Robotics and STEM Education Evening at the TechCode (1172 Castro St, Mountain View, CA) on February 2, 2017.


The Robotics and STEM Education Evening will showcase a panel of thought leaders and experts in STEM & STEAM education (such as Andra Kye, director at Silicon Valley Robotics) discussing their latest insight around the role of robotics in STEM and STEAM education.

The panel will discuss topics such as:

How early should kids be exposed to robotics?
What is the role of robotics in STEM and STEAM education?
Will robotics programming be as commonplace as typing today?
The event will also feature live demonstrations of RoboTerra's latest products for the STEM market. Attendees will have fun hands-on experiences with educational robots while enjoying fine foods and drinks.

Everyone who has an interest in Robots and/or STEM (or STEAM) education will have a great learning and networking experience.

The event will start a 6:30 pm on February 2, 2017, and will be held at 1172 Castro St, Mountain View, CA 94040

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
