RS Components, the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers, has launched a series of streaming STEM education and inspiration sessions, as part of its Grass Roots at RS program. The series delivers aspirational online sessions to encourage innovative thinking and feed students' creativity and can serve as a supplement to RS Components’ existing Imagine-X virtual STEM education modules.

‘Friends of RS’ is a four-part series of Facebook Watch parties presented by a selection of inspirational young engineers, inventors and educators. The bi-monthly learning workshops, which include live question & answer, are being hosted on the RS Facebook channel during July 2020, and all of the sessions will be available on demand after initial airing. The four interactive Facebook sessions cover:

Primary education:


Secondary education:

  •   -  Cleaning the oceans – highlighting the problems facing our oceans and its wildlife, and how engineering innovations are helping to solve plastic pollutions. (Ludovic Grosjean, OceanX Group – available on-demand)
  •   -  A maker activity to create a social distancing lanyard for helping people to return to school and the workplace safely. (Nathan Ruttley, Embedism – available July 13, 2020)


Higher education:

Speakers from each session will be available to answer live questions online following the 15-minute pre-recorded video learning sessions.

Isabella Mascarenhas, VP of Grass Roots at RS, commented: “Opportunities for students to engage in classes online are particularly important at the moment, and are invaluable for supporting parents in their home-schooling efforts. Our Friends of RS video series provides an unconventional and uplifting learning experience that we are sure will inspire creativity across the different youth groups.”

Lean Robotics: Making Robots Work in Your Factory

Lean RoboticsBy Samuel Bouchard

WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK

It was winter 2009, and I was on a mission to sell my startup’s first product, a robotic gripper, to the automotive manufacturers of Michigan. My cofounders and I—three friends from the robotics lab at Laval University—had a straightforward business plan for our new company,Robotiq.

At the time, every robotic gripper had custom-made fingers, so whenever manufacturers wanted to use grippers in their robotics-based assembly lines, they had to go through lots of trial and error regarding custom design and fabrication.
