Here are photos and videos from yesterday’s @RoboExpoNYC. I love our annual celebration of creativity, ingenuity, perseverance, engineering, coding, and robots! #MakerEd #STEAM

Thank you to Hewitt School for hosting this year’s 14th annual Robo Expo yesterday! Many thanks to Erik Nauman and Jeremy Sambuca of Hewitt School, Hope Chafiian of Spence School, Michael Tempel of Logo Foundation, Lan Heng of Ethical Culture Fieldston School, Francesca Zammarano and Javier Alvez of United Nations International School, and Jane Moore (and me) for organizing again. Our event is a celebration of robotics, engineering, programming, physical computing, creativity, ingenuity, and perseverance. It’s a low-key, kid friendly, family-friendly, and age-appropriate afternoon, and I’m fiercely proud to be a part of the founding team since our first Robo Expo in 2005. 🙂

After completing a challenge, participants get robot stickers! This year’s challenges included:

Thanks to @wagongrrl @openblackboard @gravescolleen @morrill_rob (and others!) for sharing 3D designs for coin cell battery holders! #MakerEd #STEAM #STEMed

Thanks to the generous makers below for designing and sharing these helpful 3D templates that hold a coin cell battery in place while allowing wires, conductive thread, and/or copper tape to conduct electricity:
