April 9-17, 2011, is the second annual National Robotics Week.  The National Robotics Week Advisory Council invites robot enthusiasts of all ages to celebrate with us by organizing robot-related events across the country during National Robotics Week.

The mission of National Robotics Week is to celebrate the U.S. as a leader in robotic technology, to educate the public about robotics and to inspire students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields.

Celebrate robotics by organizing an event:

* Show off your robots! If you're part of a company, research lab, robotics club, trade organization or other group that works with or has an interest in robots, consider hosting an open house and demonstrating your robots.

* Spotlight robotic technology! If you're part of a museum or science center, consider hosting a Robot Block Party, inviting guest speakers to talk about robotics, or running other robot-themed activities.

* Get creative! Host a robotics competition, panel discussion or workshop.  What about an exhibition of interactive robotic art? A webinar on medical robotics? A robot-building challenge? We welcome any type of event that's designed to raise awareness about robotics.

* Already have a robot-related event scheduled? Submit it to our official event calendar at www.nationalroboticsweek.org/events.

National Robotics Week will help publicize your event:

* Submit your event at www.nationalroboticsweek.org/events for inclusion in the official event calendar.

* Post to the National Robotics Week wall at facebook.com/roboweek, or tweet about your event to us @roboweek.

* Use the National Robotics Week logo on your website and promotional materials. Download official logos, posters and other materials at www.nationalroboticsweek.org/resources.
