“Be bold. Be awesome. And always be robotic.”

Antonio Delgado brings us into the very human world of teaching robotics.

About the speaker

Antonio Delgado works at National Instruments by day where he plays with PXI hardware and other fun stuff!

Sometimes he gets the opportunity to be a Robotics Master Mentor and teach the next generation of Robotics Mentors.

Every week, Antonio takes a trek to East Austin to assist a Title 1 Robotics team at Govalle Elementary School.

During his downtime, Antonio loves to play music with his band ‘Oh Antonio and His Imaginary Friends’ and write children’s stories. He also helps bring kid-written stories to life through the avenues of plays and songs with his friends in The Story Wranglers at The Paramount Theater.

In 2014, Antonio and his friends Nicole and Lillan started a non-profit called Science In A Suitcase. Together they hope to teach kids all over the world about the greatness of robotics and creativity.

Even when Antonio is writing about himself in the third person, he strives to ignite creativity, imagination and joy in the people around him. He believes that a STEAM education is essential to creating well rounded and fruitful students.
