The second annual Duke Robotics Student Symposium was held in conjunction with National Robotics Week on 14 April 2017. Amazon Robotics was the Keynote Speaker and sponsor. Professors, professionals, and students showcased their work on robotics related topics. Several high school robotics teams came to the event. Demonstration of drones, Unnamed Arial Vehicle Simulation, Unmanned Underwater Robot Simulation, and Baxter robots attracted much attention. It was a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and network with regional peers. There was free tickets to the Durham Bulls minor league baseball game that night.
