The guest lecturer at the Beer City Science Pub April 21 isn’t old enough to have a beer, but is already a leader in the world of robotics.
Asheville Museum of Science and The Collider are hosting an evening with 17-year-old Camille Beatty, who will share the inspiring story of her journey into the world of robotics. She’ll also demonstrate her most famous robots.
When she was 11-years-old, Camille began taking electronics apart to see how they worked. Soon after, she and her sister started designing and building custom robots, including a functional replica of the Mars Rover that earned a letter a commendation from NASA.
By the time she was 12, Camille and her sister started Beatty Robotics. Now, just a few years later, Camille has built robots for the New York Hall of Science and other museums all around the world, and she was invited to the White House by President Obama for representing the best in American entrepreneurialism.
Doors open at 5:30 pm. Come in, grab a beverage courtesy of the Asheville Brewing Alliance and some light bites, get set to learn again, at the next Beer City Science Pub.
Former TV weatherguy who never got it right, til the day I predicted mostly cloudy skies with a 100% chance of unemployment. I've survived stints as a morning radio host, stay-at-home dad, and lab assistant. All left me with with varying degrees of side-effects, which somehow combined to make me a good fit to be the editor/video producer of the828.com.
