Weekend Robotics Workshop connects students with science and technology

Adin Gold (left), 10, a student at New Paltz Elementary School, works with Taiwo Osinowo '07 (Electrical Engineering) to construct a robotic vehicle on June 9 at the Weekend Robotics Workshop held in the Resnick Engineering Hall. Michael Otis (Engineering) led the sessions that allowed students, 9-14 years old, to design and build vehicles using the latest technology from Lego Mindstorms-NXT. The workshops - held June 9-10 and 16-17 - were sponsored by the AC2 Program, a statewide network of academic institutions that work together to provide opportunities for under-represented and economically disadvantaged students in the fields of science and technology. Funding was provided by the New York State Education Department's Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP).
