3rd round: Robothon Exhibition-Summer 2022 Event

Welcome to the details page for the 1st 2022 Virtual SRS event!!!

These SRS hosted virtual events are either a substitute for or run in addition to our traditional in-person Robothon events!!!

This SRS event is designed to be a “free-style” show-n-tell type showcase event. Presented in a completely safe virtual environment, from the comfort and safety of your own home-office or work-shop!!!

Ideal project categories are: any type of robot build, contest specific robot build OR a general robotics related project!!!!  But if your tech based project does not conveniently fit one of these areas – that’s fine – be creative with your tech skills and passions!!!!

Here are the details:

  • August 27th, 2022, starting at noon (Pacific time) – likely length of 3 to 4 hours.
    • Once the presentations are complete we will include a socialize- networking segment. To run until all want to disband the event….
  • The “venue” will be on Zoom
  • Pre-registration is required as a Presenter (see the form below)
    • You are required to provide a textual content or video summary of your project at time of registration.
      • You are asked to summarize what your project is about; beyond the title that you provide; to provide a summary description on what the project entails.
      • If using video, we suggest you do an upload to (your personal) Youtube and provide the link to us.
      • Instead you can submit a textual content summary of your project.
  • Registration is on a 1st come, 1st serve basis!!
    • We will allow up to 6 Presenters for the live event.
    • If your registration is beyond the max of 6, you will be placed on the wait-list; to be priority candidates for next event registration.
    • In addition to 6 Presenters, we also want to secure 2 or 3 Backup Presenters; to cover in case of a main presenter emergency. Ifwhen a main presenter drops-out, then you will be contacted to be placed in the live queue. The backup presenters will also be assigned in order of registration.
  • General information on this event – it is intended to be an informal, fun, relaxed knowledge exchange event opportunity to attend or present at. It is perfectly fine NOT to be perfect for your presentation – mistakes are fine. Strive for Excellence, not Perfection!!
  • You can join this event either as a presenter or spectator\attendee
  • Presenter preparation details:
    • Pick and prepare a project of your choosing
    • Prepare your Registration Summary-of-project Content: textual content or video. This content NEEDS to be included within your registration form.

    • You will have 15 to minutes to present your project (live)
      • Your intro\bio
      • What your project is about
      • Demo content show-n-tell: Video (live or pre-recorded), Pictures, Slides
      • How it works the insider view
      • Challenges you overcame
      • What you learned: points you’d do differently next time and your next steps
      • Q&A and feedback (from spectators)

We will have one Practice Session (ahead of the live event) for the Presenters. The practice session will also be on Zoom, using the same link as the actual event. This session is tentative; depending on presenter needs. This separate practice is used to:

  • To confirm your computer or device is compatible with Zoom.
  • To confirm you can connect with Zoom on your chosen device.
  • To confirm setup for your camera and mic (and any other tech needed specific for your presentation)
  • To practice features\tools usage when you present:
    • Screen sharing\un-share etc.
  • To practice your presentation (NOT your content, just practice of presentation logistics) – format and switch between you being presenter vrs switch to the host.
  • This practice session will be scheduled via a choice of dates-times (to be announced soon for your choice)

There are multiple goals with this event:

  • Besides the “just fun” aspect, it is intended to be educational for all: the presenters as well as the audience – to share technology based education content!!!
  • It’s an opportunity for the presenters to hone their “presenting in a group” skills – an ever increasing job employment skill needed in today’s COVID environment; to be able to demonstrate tech skills and present your bio details by using a virtual environment!!!
