  • [Kat | 1 min] Introduction
  • [Kat | 2 min] Recap working group goal:
    • Long-term goal:
      • The goal of the ROS Education Working Group is to create a set of course materials for undergraduates that teaches the fundamentals of the Robot Operating System, and where necessary, aspects of robotics theory. These course materials will be compatible with ROS’s open-source development philosophy, and must be:
        • Easily and frequently updated to the latest ROS distro
        • Support contributions from the open-source community
        • Based entirely on open-source hardware and software
        • As much as possible be platform independent
        • Permissively licensed and support the creation of derivative works
      • Further Clarification: This working group WILL NOT BE TEACHING ROS DIRECTLY, we’re building the materials that others can use to teach ROS. If you believe this is a study group, you are mistaken.
    • Short-term goals
      • Working towards a community wide survey to help build specification for future work.
      • Gather data on what exists already, and share within group.
      • Plan: committees put together sub-surveys based on discussion and integrate them into one broader survey.
  • [Kat | 1 min] Briefly recap last meeting for new attendees
  • [Kat | 1min]
  • [Kat | 2 min] Would someone like to volunteer as a scribe / note taker?
    • The note taker must be able to:
      • Attend each meeting
      • Take notes about what is discussed, action items, and responsible parties.
      • Post the notes in the Discourse thread immediately after each meeting.
      • If you are interested please REPLY IN THIS THREAD BELOW
  • [Kat | 30min] Updates from committee chairs (this should be committee organizing and survey review time)
