Four New HBCUs Join ARTSI PDF Print E-mail

At the ARTSI Faculty Workshop  in June, four new HBCUs were welcomed into  the ARTSI Alliance, bringing the total to 17.  The new schools and responsible faculty are: Bowie State University (Professor Claude Turner), Fort Valley State University (Professor Cheryl Swanier), Virginia State University (Professor Hui Chen), and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (Professor Gurdeep Hura).

All of these professors, and two other ARTSI faculty, attended a workshop on Teaching Robotics with Tekkotsu, held July 19-21 at Carnegie Mellon University. The workshop was taught by CMU Professor David Touretzky with assistance from Professor Xuejun Liang of Jackson State University, another ARTSI HBCU.

The new ARTSI schools will be receiving two new Create/ASUS robots each in preparation for offering their first robotics course in the coming academic year.
