Meet large and small robots at the Robot Block Party.


We are looking for help teaching people to solder at the Robot Block Party, a partnership between Rhode Island School of the Future and the Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative at Brown University. This celebration of National Robotics Week features more than 40 exhibitors, robot demonstrations, and hands-on fun for all ages. Robots help explore the ocean, space and land, and Rhode Islanders help them!

Winner of a "BEST OF RHODE ISLAND" award in 2015, the Robot Block Party needs volunteers to join the planning committee. Interested in robotics and have skills in video production, social media, or event management? We'd love to hear from you.

Volunteers help during a shift that runs from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm, or 1:00 pm to 4 pm. Training, lunch and a tshirt are provided for each volunteer.

Please help us teach Rhode Islanders to solder!
