TechBrick Events and Happenings for 2013-14

Oct 21, 2013 National Instruments NI Days in Washington, DC

On Monday, Oct 21, 2013, TechBrick was invited to provide a display at the National Instruments NI Days in Washington DC.

National Instruments  provides hardware and software that is used in almost every sector of manufacturing and research around the world. A special version of their LabView software is used to program JrFLL, FLL, FTC, and FTC robot systems.

Ananya, Ashley, Amos, Ignacio, Jonathan, and Alexandra, along with Marco and Tim, staffed our booth. Throughout the day they spoke to many industry leaders and executives with energy and enthusiasm. In fact, Marco and Tim largely watched because of how well our students communicated our work.

For our students, it was their first trade show and they worked hard all day. We ended up at Red Brick Station (http://redbrickstation.com) in Whitemarsh, one of our sponsors, who hosted us for a great end-of-day debrief and dinner.

Marco Ciavolino spoke in the NI Fast 15 Segment on "Why Robotics Is Perhaps the Most Effective Way to Engage Young Students (K--12) in STEM Education"
