Dec 28, 2020 2:27 am


Wishing you a very happy holiday season and all the best for 2021!

Help us choose a book for our next bookclub hangout on Saturday 2nd of January at 3pm PST - the choices are Brotopia by Emily Chang, Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez and The Power by Naomi Alderman.

There is the chance to design robots and robotic applications that will actually have a beneficial impact on our society. The emergence of COVID-19 showed us how fragile many of our industries are, and thoughtfully designed robots have the opportunity to assist in filling some of the gaps created by social distancing requirements." says Laura Stelzner, robotics engineer at RIOS.

RIOS published a story on Laura Stelzner's journey into robotics engineering to celebrate her first work anniversary. That sounds like a good place to work!

In our first Spotlight, we hear the stories of women in robotics from all over the world! Meet Ecem Tuglan, Tyong Anh Ens, Sravanthi Kanchi, Kajal Gada and Dimitra Gkatzia. Every month we're going to feature stories from women around the world working in robotics - fill out our Spotlight form and this could be you!

Please nominate outstanding Women in Robotics via nominations@womeninrobotics.org and share your story for one of our next newsletters in our Women in Robotics Spotlights, so we can celebrate your achievements and why you love robotics too!

Again, many thanks to Sunita Pokharel for creating the Update series, Allison Thackston for setting up the Spotlights, and always the magnificent Sabine Haeurt for keeping Robohub.org going (often single handedly!)
