Giving Demonstration of our S.N.A.C.K Project – Smart Street Navigation using Artificial Intelligence for City Kids. Elevate Tech Festival, MaRS, September 23, 2018
We demonstrated how artificial intelligence can be used to generate risk index of Toronto Streets and Crossings so that the kids can find the safest (not the fastest) route to walk to school. more information
With Bobak Ferdowsi, Flight Director of the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Mission and Systems Engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA, May 2018
We demonstrated to him our Artificial Intelligence-based project to predict Risk of Asteroid Collision. Learnt from him how procedures for managing the Mars Curiousity Mission were documented.
With Navdeep Bains, Minister of Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, Canada. February 2018
We discussed about the financial allocation for Science and Space in the Federal Budget 2018. We recommended 3 things related to space: 1) Set up a Space Port – seeing a rocket launch from Canadian soil will boost #STEM and fire imagination of students 2) Encourage #SpaceStartups – so talent finds opportunities in Canada 3) Develop more Robotic & Science payloads
With Canadian Astronaut Dr. Jennifer Sidey at the Canadian Space Agency, July 2017
We demoed her our Canada Arm. And we learned from her about her interest in combustion and her journey to becoming an Astronaut.
With Canadian Astronaut Joshua Kutryk at the Canadian Space Agency, July 2017
Demoed our Canadian Arm. We learned from him about his love for flying. Joshua is a test pilot, engineer, and lieutenant-colonel in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He has flown more than 25 aircraft types!
With Canadian Astronaut Jeremy Hansen, April 2017
We talked to Jeremy Hansen to learn more about space projects and technologies that would be useful for astronauts. He advised us to keep working on science, technology, and engineering projects. We took this opportunity to show him our home-built model of Canadarm. This was funny as he is well trained in using the real Canadarm! We were inspired and motivated after talking to Jeremy, and we hoped to see him again.
With Glen Murray, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Ontario, Canada. October 2016
HotPopRobot.com giving a demo of the home made pollution sensor using in their project “Fix the Six” which won the First Prize in the Climate Hackathon (#Climathon). They briefed him about their findings including that small, neighbourhood parks are very efficient in carbon removal from the atmosphere.
With Kathleen Wynee, Premier of Ontario, Canada. September 2015
HotPopRobot.com advocating for greater investment in science and public goods in Ontario to curb climate emissions, protect our environment, and promote healthier living.
With John Tory, Mayor, Toronto, August 2015
HotPopRobot.com giving a demo of their flashing LED project using Gyroscope and old bicycle wheel. They talked to John Tory about increase emphasis and budget for science in Government Planning so that young Canadians can become Creators rather than Consumers.
With Gene Cernan, Last Man to Have Walked the Moon, Apollo XVII. April 2015
HotPopRobot.com made a 4 feet tall model of Saturn V rocket – the one in which Gene Cernan went to the Moon in December 1972.
Astronaut Eugene Cernan challenges us all, “I walked on the moon, what can’t you do?”
Gene Cernan has gone beyond anyone we have met so far in promoting space exploration and igniting inter-generational minds to follow their Space dreams! Thank you Gene. Check out the movie: “The Last Moon on the Moon”
With Chris Hadfield, First Canadian Astronaut to Walk in Space. April 2015
HotPopRobot.com trying to learn from Chris Hadfield on how Canadian Space Sector has changed over the years.
