What can take your fun day at the science center to the next level? Genius in the House! This event brings brainiacs from fields such as biology, art, engineering, mathematics and more to the Fleet to enhance the exhibit experience. This is a casual event in the exhibit galleries, not a lecture, so you'll have the chance to chat with the genius and ask questions. Explore themes from our exhibitions in ways that are both insightful and delightful.

DIY Robo Car

Genius in the House

We are a small group of engineers and tinkerers who meet weekly to build, test and discuss robotics and AI as related to autonomous vehicles.  We work with an open source DIY platform consisting of a standard RC car and adding an inexpensive Raspberry Pi computer and camera for a less than $200 desktop AI laboratory. Our goals are to educate ourselves and the public on some of the capabilities of AI now and what's possible tomorrow and beyond.

We meet weekly at our outdoor track at UCSD, organize over a Meetup.com channel off the San Diego Robotics Club meetup page. We also hold monthly Beginner and Builder meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.  That meetup is also listed off the SD Robotics Meetup site.  https://www.meetup.com/roboticsclub/events/

Core members of our team are: Tawn Kramer, Doug LaRue, Jack Silberman

10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
