Event List

  • The Robot Zoo Exhibit @The Children's Museum of the Upstate, The Children's Museum of the Upstate

    This 2,500-square-foot exhibit reveals the magic of nature as a master engineer. Three robot animals and seven hands-on activities illustrate fascinating real-life characteristics, such as how a chameleon changes colors and a fly walks on the ceiling. The larger-than-life-size animated robots include a chameleon and a platypus. Also featured is a house fly with a 3-foot wingspread. Machinery in the robot animals simulates the body parts of their real-life counterparts. In the robot animals, muscles become pistons, intestines become filtering pipes and brains become computers. Sensory activities include “Swat the Fly,” a test of the visitor’s reaction time (one-twelfth as fast as a house fly’s), and “Sticky Feet,” where visitors wearing special hand and knee pads can try to stick like flies to a sloped surface. Triggering the “Tongue Gun” demonstrates how a real chameleon shoots out its long, sticky-tipped tongue to reel in a meal. THE MUSEUM IS NOT OPEN MONDAYS

  • The Goddard Challenge, The Goddard School

    We are challenging the children in our Jr. Kindergarten program to conduct a weeklong project that involves brainstorming, designing, building, and programing a robot using Legos. This is a great way for the children to learn about robots and develop their STEM skills in a project based learning environment. Monday: Let's learn about Robots! Tuesday: Let's Brainstorm! Wednesday: Design Time! Thursday: Let's Get Building! Friday: Programming the Product!
