The fourth annual National Robotics Week, April 6-14, 2013, is expected to bring together engineers, scientists, students and families to share a passion for technology, learning, and of course, robotics.

Working with NASA and iRobot, the National Robotics Week Advisory Council will debut inspirational videos and content at events around the country in a push to excite the next generation of innovators about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

A NASA video featuring Bobak Ferdowsi, NASA’s Mohawk Guy and flight director for Mars rover Curiosity, along with content focusing on other NASA role models will premiere at science centers, museums and robot events across the country.

More than 125 robot events across all 50 states, Washington, DC and Puerto Rico are planned by robotics industry leaders, institutions and universities, including iRobot, Stanford University, the Chicago Museum of Science & Industry, and Michigan Robotics.
