Robots on the rise: ASU researchers at the forefront

Robotics is becoming one of the most prolific areas of technological advancement. Engineers are at work on designs for robotic devices that promise to aid progress in almost every field of human endeavor – and ASU researchers are at the forefront of the wave of robotics innovation. They’re developing ideas for ways robots could be employed in health and medical fields, in education, in national defense and security, and in far-flung efforts to expand exploration of the deep sea and outer space. ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and School of Earth and Space Exploration are giving students...

Inspiring future engineers

FIRST LEGO League The theme of this year’s FIRST LEGO League competition, “Body Forward,” challenges students with robotics projects that demonstrate how engineering and biological and medical sciences are combining efforts to find solutions to healthcare problems. Students program LEGO MINDSTORMS robots to explore medical questions involving bone repair, rapid blood screening, development of bionic eyes, nerve mapping, object control through thought, overcoming genetic predispositions to diseases and maximizing the body’s potential to heal itself. FIRST LEGO League is an exciting and fun global robotics program, designed to ignite an enthusiasm for discovery of the basic principles of science, technology, engineering, and math in children, ages 9 to 14. FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. Each year, FLL teams of three to 10 children, embark on an adventurous challenge, based on current, real-world issues. Camp Sparky brings engineering fun to elementary schools Going to college seems a remote possibility for many fifth graders. But a group of ASU students has set out to change their thinking, by bringing the fun of college learning experiences to them. Six times a semester, about 80 children from Title I elementary schools in the Phoenix area welcome ASU’s Camp Sparky to their classrooms. ASU students plan an engineering day camp at a different school every other Friday, bringing the children to the Tempe campus at least once during...
