dimitri designed and built awsm as the initial installment of the k-8 robotic curriculum that integrates into everyday content areas within common core standards.
awsm stands at a soaring 8 “8” when fully extended. it contains 15 degrees of freedom, 19 servos, rolls and lights up, speaks and is semi-autonomous.
in designing awsm, recycled parts from a 2006 yamaha r6, a school bus and a snow mobile were used!
dimitri donated awsm to georgia tech in may of 2016 – the robot can be seen roaming the college.
