BCOC learns about robots in our future from Chad Jenkins, Brown professor of computer science and robotics.

Friday, November 7th, 2014

 Brown Club OC hosted another great event Friday night featuring Brown Computer Science/Robotics professor Chad Jenkins. BCOC welcomed alumni, local students and members of the Dana Point Robotics Club to our event. The crowd was treated to a live link with Brown's robotics lab, Professor Jenkins' 11 year old daughter remotely driving the robot around our room from her home in Rhode Island, and a demonstration of a remote controlled drone - a real crowd pleaser for the younger members of the audience who were allowed to pilot the craft using their tablet computers. BCOC looks forward to welcoming Professor Jenkins back again soon for an encore presentation!

Next up, an interview workshop by Brown Dean of Admissions, Jim Miller, at Sage Hill School on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 1:30 to 3:30. For those who would enjoy learning everything you want to know about the Brown admissions program but were afraid to ask - This Is For You! Attendance is restricted to Brown Alumni only.
