Outreach

The CPRT is involved in various outreach events throughout the year. We are heavily involved in our Carleton engineering community, and as a part of our sponsorship with industry members, have visited their on-site locations for events such as Go Eng Girl.

See below for some of the past events we have been a part of, and upcoming ones you can find the team at. If you would like the team to speak or have a demonstration at an event, please contact carletonplanetaryrobotics@gmail.com!
