Bring a robot to the library, host a demo at a university, or organize a robot convention. There are no rules other then to share the excitement of robotics with your community. If you hosted an event in 2020, tell us about your event.
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.

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!
