Advanced Step in Innovative MObility Techmania - Pilsen - Czech Republic Honda's robot ASIMO performing everything he's able to: running, jumping, playing football, dancing, walking stairs and serving a coffee. ...then dancing again and sadly leaving :( Unforgetable experience. Hope to see you again soon, buddy. ASIMO, an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, is a humanoid robot designed and developed by Honda. Introduced on 21 October 2000, ASIMO was designed to be a multi-functional mobile assistant. With aspirations of helping those who lack full mobility, ASIMO is frequently used in demonstrations across the world to encourage the study of science and mathematics. At 130 cm (4 ft 3 in) tall and 48 kg (106 lb), ASIMO was designed to operate in real-world environments, with the ability to walk or run on two feet at speeds of up to 6 kilometres per hour (3.7 mph).

At 12 years old, Rohan Agrawal knows more than most PhD students in robotics about programming robots. This summer he's interning at Ologic, a research and development firm that has designed robots for the likes of Google, Disney, and Hasbro. He's been programming since he was 4 years old, and we were curious about how he got started. We quickly learned that his story was not just one about a child prodigy programmer but more about how to find and cultivate your child's inner genius. The formula is straightforward but requires patience and careful observation. Expose your children to a wide range of possible interests, see which they gravitate to, and open the doors for them. Children will spend endless hours doing the things they love to do. For the full story on how you can discover your child's inner genius, check out our blog post here: http://hackingplay.com/how-to-discover-your-child-inner-genius The Bay Area provides rich resources and communities that help children develop their passions. A few that have been especially helpful for Rohan include: - The HomeBrew Robotics club (http://www.hbrobotics.org) - The Amateur Radio club (http://www.fars.k6ya.org/) - Hack the Future (http://hackthefuture.org/) - TechLab Education (http://techlabeducation.com/) - Hacker Dojo (http://www.hackerdojo.com/) - Ologic (http://www.ologicinc.com/) At Play-i, we're developing a fun and accessible way for children to learn computer science at a young age. We're inspiring creation by cultivating a love for learning.

It starts with a spark of curiosity. Every child is different and every story is different, and we're hoping to show how to help your little ones live up to their full potential.

The Google Science Fair is a global online science and technology competition for individuals and teams ages 13-18. Here is the Awards Show from Mountain View, Ca where we are honoring the great minds who participated in this years event.
Teaching basic robotics to kids is an excellent way to foster a love for science and engineering that will hopefully continue as they get older. Fun robot kits for kids are a way to introduce children to simple robotics engineering concepts. Robotics projects increase creativity, teach children to follow directions, and the finished product gives them a sense of accomplishment and confidence. Not only that, but they have a cool toy to play with when the project is complete. In a world where instant gratification is often the norm, having to put a little time and effort in to building a toy will help kids to appreciate the toys they have and the mechanics behind them.
