Ninth Annual National Robotics Week Scheduled
April 5, 2018

The ninth annual National Robotics Week kicks off April 7th with STEM – focused events happening across all corners of the US. Established by Congress and iRobot in 2010, National Robotics Week is designed to raise awareness about the importance of STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), and how these subjects play a role in shaping the future of education, industry and the U.S. economy.

“Science and technology are at the forefront of innovation, making STEM education a critical element in ensuring students are prepared for the future career landscape,” said Congressman Joe Kennedy III. “ At its core, National Robotics Week brings STEM experiences to all education levels across the country, providing greater access and opportunity for the next generation of innovators.”

“As a pioneer in robotics, iRobot is proud to offer a resource for students and educators who are interested in learning about, or benefiting from, a robotics STEM program,” said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot. “What’s exciting about National Robotics Week is that there are literally hundreds of events taking place nationwide – hosted by companies and organizations that share our passion for STEM education – in which students, parents and educators can take part in.”

A full list of 2018 registered events can be found at:

National Robotics Week events include activities such as panel discussions, introductory robotics courses for kids, robotics competitions, robot demonstrations, tours of innovative labs and science fairs. This year, there are events happening in all 50 states.
