Hundreds Flock to 2011 Maryland Robotics Day

Participants listen to keynote speaker Bill Borgia from Lockheed Martin speak on robotics and economic development.

Participants listen to keynote speaker Bill Borgia from Lockheed Martin speak on robotics and economic development.

Braving the tail end of a week of heavy rain and flooding, hundreds of participants from industry, government, and academia came out to see robots used in medicine, security, space, and search-and-rescue operations. The Maryland Robotics Center hosted its second open house on Friday, Sept. 9, featuring swimming, flying, walking, crawling, jumping and rolling robots in more than 40 demonstrations spread over close to 20 different laboratories.

The event also attracted a sizable number of school groups and individual high school students interested in pursuing robotics at the University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering. Many thanks to our undergraduate volunteers from the Science, Technology and Society program!

Watch the keynote address on robotics and economic development, given by Lockheed Martin's Bill Borgia.
