All things robotic in San Diego County will be celebrated on Sat., Sept. 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the San Diego Hall of Champions in Balboa Park. This family-friendly event’s goal is to inspire children and families to become innovators in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Robo Expo is free and open to the public with advance registration. The event is coordinated by San Diego State University’s Exploring STEM Careers Initiative (ESCI) and the San Diego Science Alliance (SDSA).

Robots of all shapes, sizes and functions will be on display from local companies, student clubs and global organizations. “Russell” the 17 ft. tall Electric Giraffe is scheduled to greet visitors as they enter. 3R’s Robotics, one of last year’s most popular exhibits, will return with life-sized robotics and learning challenges for every age.

Visitors will meet professionals from SeaBotix and interact with robots from SPAWAR and San Diego Fire and Rescue. Several non-profit technical and engineering schools will be on hand to talk about opportunities and instruction, along with students and their creations. This is the 14th year for the event. Support is also provided by the U.S. Navy.

“Robo Expo carries a powerful message of how the economy and society use robotics on a daily basis. Children and adults will be thrilled to interact closely with the robots and learn about how they can be involved in robotic education,” said Dave Massey, Project Director, Exploring STEM Careers Initiative, San Diego State University.

The Hall of Champions in Balboa Park is located at 2131 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA, 92101. For more information, email robotics@sdsa.org.
