InOrbit Robot Space to host events in celebration of National Robotics Week
In honor of National Robotics Week, the InOrbit Robot Space in downtown Mountain View is inviting the public to come learn more about robots and "demystify how modern robots are working with society," the company announced.
"Join us all week long in-store for activities, like planning a TurtleBot mission, desktop 3D printing, meeting RoboGames competitors, and a ‘GenAI’ talk hosted by the Berkeley Haas Alumni Network Silicon Valley Chapter,” InOrbit wrote in a statement. “All are free and drop-in except the GenAI talk.”
National Robotics Week runs from April 8 to 16. For a complete list of National Robotics Week events at the InOrbit Robot Space visit the company’s website.

The new storefront is a community space, product showroom and concept store all in one, the company said, with a goal to give its visitors a chance to see robots in action.
