We hosted over 100 middle and high school students at our STEM open house during National Robotics week. Attendees were treated to many demonstrations throughout our lab space.

We were happy to share our event with the Latino STEM Alliance and the Boston Public Schools. They brought teams from local schools to display their robotics projects. Raffle prizes were given out by Arrow Electronics – including 2 drones! The students were thrilled to be taking home new electronics.

A delegation from the U.K. stopped by for a tour and some demonstrations as well. This included Lord Prior of Brampton who appointed Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 21 December 2016.
