The robots are coming! (And they're here to help.)

Celebrate National Robotics Week 2015 by checking out the cool ‘bots designed by Chicago-area student and amateur teams, hearing from top university robotics scholars, watching a live robotics competition and interacting with some state-of-the-art robots. Demonstrations from university, after-school and hobbyist robotics teams will be April 4, 11 and 12. The BotBall Championship on April 11 is a team-oriented robotics competition for middle- and high-school-aged students who design, build and program the competing robots.

Stay tuned for details! All activities are included in Museum Entry.
