Robotics Showcase by Mid-Maine Tech Center’s Award-Winning “The Collective” Robotics Club
By Reggie Grenier, Information Technology Instructor at Mid-Maine Technical Center
Technological innovation and artificial intelligence have ushered in a new era, dubbed Industry 4.0 by Forbes. The Internet of Things has turned almost any consumer product into a robot, and the mass availability of robots will continue to transform our economy.
Robotics clubs like “The Collective” train young tech enthusiasts to build the robots of the future. We’ll showcase one such robot, giving you an inside look into the construction, materials, and innovation which will become increasingly familiar as we enter Industry 4.0.
“The Collective” is always looking for technologists to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with students – consider volunteering your time to enrich their educational experience!
