On February 17th, the Princeton University Robotics Club (PURC) hosted a very successful open house in the StudioLab! Over one hundred people came out to show their support for Princeton's engineering community and for their many projects (and free pizza). Members showed off their hard work with live demos ranging from drones controlled by recognizing hand gestures to autonomous robots that interacted with visitors and so much more.

One of the goals for this event was to foster and build a larger connection within the Princeton Engineering community, by bringing together many engineering organizations. In addition to our project teams, PURC would like to extend a big thank you to the many undergraduate engineering groups that played a crucial role in making this event so successful:

  • Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE)
  • Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE)
  • Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
  • Princeton Women In Computer Science (PWiCS)
  • National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE-PU)
  • Muslim Engineers for Social Impact and Justice (MESIJ)

PURC's mission is to make engineering accessible to anyone of any background and any experience. This means all  projects are strictly no experience required so that anyone at any level can join and learn with us. This event and our projects would not have been possible without the support of Princeton's Council of Science and Technology (CST), ODUS's Project Board, and our many other partners.
