Robotics Workshop at MIT

Last week, members of the CASE Robotics and Cushing Scholars groups attended a hands-on robotics workshop at MIT.
Focusing on artificial intelligence and using robots developed by iRobot (a company started by MIT grads), students learned concepts of programming, sensors, motion, speed, and direction, and applied their understanding using Lego Mindstorms software and robots. After completing several challenges testing their mastery of basic programming and artificial intelligence, aspiring CA engineers enjoyed time at the MIT Museum.
