Rhode Island Students of the Future is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization that inspires young people to explore science, technology,
engineering, math and manufacturing through youth robotics. We provide
infrastructure for hands-on, inquiry based STEM outreach programs including
FIRST® LEGO® League.

The Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative is a group of Brown University
faculty, students, and affiliates dedicated to robotics as a means to tackle
the problems the world faces today. Beyond pursuing the goal of
technological advancement, we want to ensure that these advancements
are applicable and beneficial economically and socially. We are working
across many disciplines to document the societal needs and applications of human-robot interaction research as well
as the ethical, legal, and economic questions that will arise with its development. Our research ultimately aims to
help create and understand robots that coexist harmoniously with humans.
