From Aug. 6 – Aug. 17, Robolink hosted 10 Korean students in Carmel Valley/Sorrento Valley for Robotics Camps. The students toured many companies and organizations related to Robotics and Smart Phone applications, including: USC Robotics Interaction lab, Qualcomm Institution (Robotics Lab, Immersive Visualization Lab) 3D Robotics, Seabotix, UCSD IEEE Lab, Qulacomm, Legoland, Universal Studio, etc.

The students met many noticeable people in town, such as Rick Timm, president of Seabotix, who led the tour of his company; Joshua Ott, who is editorial director at 3D robotics; Victor Lee, the president of UCSD IEEE; and Tingfan Wu, who is actively working on Diego San robot at Qulacomm Institution.

The international students also had the opportunity to interact with local students in San Diego. Kallen Lonbom, who lives in Carmel Valley, got to stay with those 10 international students. He learned robotics education, shared many cool American cultures with them, and also competed with them for making marketable robots.
