Silicon Valley Robotics and the Bay Area Science Festival are teaming up to bring the incredibly successful Robot Block Party to the masses that come to the festival every year. In keeping with the spirit of the Block Party, we’re going to create a Robot Zoo at Discovery Days, a free hands-on science day that attracts tens of thousands from across the Bay Area. The Robot Zoo will be a dedicated area for demonstrations, hands-on activities, and many roboticists and robot enthusiasts.
All Robots welcome – Whether it is for academic research, a school project, or a commercial or industrial robot. We’re hosting two robot zoos during the festival:
- Saturday, 10/26 – Cal State East Bay – Hayward. The mini zoo will occur in front of the science building. Expected attendance is well over 10,000
- Saturday, 11/2 – AT&T Park, San Francisco. The Robot Zoo will be in Willie Mays Plaza, the main entrance to the ballpark. We’ve featured FIRST Teams and the Stanford CARS Audi in this area in the past. Expected attendance is over 30,000.
Both events run from 11 AM – 4PM with setup opening at 8 AM.
A short registration form is here: http://www.bayareascience.org/robot-zoo/
We’re delighted to partner with the Bay Area Science Festival, to put on another robot block party – only BIGGER!
We expect this to be a great recruitment, promotional and outreach opportunity, attended by thousands of people who interested in robotics and engineering.
PLEASE express your interest in being part of the Bay Area Science Festival NOW!
