Slingshot, the Documentary - Addressing the Challenge for Clean Water

Imagine if clean drinking water could be produced from almost any source - ocean water, polluted rivers, even raw sewage.

In this full length screening of the documentary Slingshot watch as inventor Dean Kamen designs a device that can do just that, and uses it to draw attention to the urgent need for clean water around the world.

Atlanta Science Festival at Kell Robotics

Visit the Kell Robotics Innovation Center, where we build large robots for competition! Experience informal workshops for learning about robotics, inventing things, & solving problems. Participants will enjoy hands on activities for building and programming robots. Take part in casual conversations about science, technology, engineering and math. Create 'robot' art, and learn how robots meet science!

Robotics Open House

Kell Robotics will be hosting an open house at the Kell Robotics Innovation Center on Friday, April 17 from 6-9 PM.

You can learn more about Kell Robotics and explore the different roles that make up an FIRST Robotics Competition team, including programming, computer aided design, and video production groups. We will also be demo'ing our present and past robots.

Kell Labs

Kell Labs has been upgraded thanks to grants from WIT and Best Buy. The team can now offer experiences in a wide range of tools listed in the accompanying article.

Capability now exists for students to learn coding for robots, android tablets, and games. Students can also learn CAD for design, and animation for movies and rich media experiences.

Students can also learn a little about one of the hottest careers of the future, becoming a data scientist.
