Professors reach out to local schools with robotics
Dr. Chih-Cheng Hung and Dr. Patrick Bobbie, two professors from the School of Computing and Software Engineering (CSE), are showing the community what SPSU has to offer by coordinating and directing outreach events in the field of robotics.
In early May, Dr. Hung led the SPSU Honors Independent Study Intelligent Robotics class on a visit to local Wheeler High School. The group showed the high school students the type of exciting work that is being done at SPSU. Undergraduate students from various departments who helped with the presentation included Luke Isler, Lei Wang and Sarah Pace.
On the other side of Cobb County in Austell, Dr. Bobbie worked with Sanders Elementary School on the National Robotics Summer School (NAROSS) program. His goal was to increase the students’ awareness of science, technology, engineering and computing by replicating work he had done for a National Science Foundation CORE project involving schools in Ghana.
For the NAROSS project, Dr. Bobbie and the SPSU Robotics Team made a series of visits to Sanders Elementary School to work closely with the children on various projects.
