Robotics Presentation Provides Grand Kickoff to AV Week Celebration

Monday, October 31, 2011

"Transformers: Mentoring through Robotics" opened the 2011 AV Week celebration and highlighted a partnership between Westminster College and Laurel School District, designed to develop and focus on math, science and computer skills through the creation and use of robots.

Dr. Terri Lenox, associate professor of computer science and chair of Westminster's Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and Katie Gray, Americorps Pennsylvania Campus Compact Volunteer in Service to America in the Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, explained the project and demonstrated the robotices programming used for the project in Westminster's Mueller Theater

About 25 people were in attendance, including representatives from the Math, Psychology, Information Systems, and Religion, History, Philosophy and Classics departments as well as members of the public. As a result of this project's involvement in AV Week, the Pennsylvania Intermediate Unit IV and the Drinko Center are investigating future collaborative projects.

Westminster College's Audio Visual Department joined InfoComm International in its AV Week tradition to highlight the industry's prevalence and value, applauding our colleagues here and around the globe by spotlighting AV technologies, services, and the impact they have on everyday communications and our lives. This year marked the 6th annual AV Week at Westminster College, held October 16-22, 2011.
