Abstract : To augment and expand the capacity of our robotics program, Adams State University purchased equipment specifically for undergraduate research and as well as classroom use that coincides with DoD research interests such as artificial intelligence and computer science. The acquisition of TETRIX robotics, Clear path Robotics Husky mobile robot platforms and NAO Next Gen humanoid robots support the efforts of Adams States STEM faculty to develop a full-fledged robotics laboratory that will transform the universitys research capacity and potential to engage students in STEM studies. The acquired 3D printing systems as well as the CNC milling machine and CNC lathe will enable students to learn valuable 21st-century skills that have direct application in the working world and facilitate robotics research far beyond the departments existing capabilities.
