  • Each year, attendees of the Philly Robotics Expo (PRX) have the opportunity to participate in a one-day robotics event that includes programming, mechanical and electrical classes, GRASP tours, presentations, and visits with high school robotics teams and professionals. All individuals, school groups, community groups, and professionals interested in STEM fields are invited and encouraged to sign up and attend this event. We hope that the Philly Robotics Expo will continue to be an event where students from all around the city of Philadelphia can come and be inspired by robotics and STEM education.
