- If you’re interested in “STEAM” (the idea that the arts should be integrated into STEM education), consider forming a CMU chapter of STEAMwithUs.
- A $100K prize for a Robot Art Painter. Help teach the world that “robot art is nothing new, from Jean Tinguely‘s kinetic sculptures in the 1960s, to contemporary dancing machines, to robotic docents giving tours of museums, to crowd-sourced robot paintings.”
- Also: We might be able to get a Soli, but we’ve been asked to present some ideas. Let’s brainstorm.
