The ARTSI Alliance has received a $25K Google Research Award in support of the group’s work promoting the African American robotics community. The money will be used to fund additional HBCUs to join the Alliance, to purchase equipment for robotics education, and to hold summer workshops for ARTSI faculty.
We want ARTSI roboticists to get to know each other, and we’re going to use blogs to facilitate this Eaach summer REU student will keep a blog, and read and comment on other students’ blogs. Prizes for the best blogs and the best comments will be awarded at the end of the summer:
- $50 for the best blog; $25 for the second best
- $50 for the person who posts the best comments on other people’s blogs; $25 for the second best
Use this opportunity to show off your research, learn what other people are doing, and make new friends who you’ll see at the ARTSI Student Research Conference in March 2009.
