Outreach and exhibition

Our outreach activities, mainly targeted at youth thinking about entering the STEM field, are generally conducted in collaboration with the Engineering Outreach program and the Renison eSTEM program.

We are also regular supporters and exhibitors for local high school and undergraduate level conferences and competitions, such as the Waterloo FIRST Robotics Competition, and host field trips for local schools.

When hosted on campus, our interactive outreach sessions with 10 - 20 students per session working on different robots have always been labelled a success by both the organizers and in follow-up feedback from the students and their parents.

During the pandemic, virtual versions of these sessions were developed to illustrate the types of research and student activities the RoboHub is involved with and supports, in the form of talks and demonstrations provided remotely by RoboHub staff via video conferencing.
