Robotics For Kids & Families – Robot Day at The Works

Robot Day 2016 was a huge success. Thanks to all the presenters and sponsors and families who helped us celebrate National Robotics Week with all sorts of robotics for kids and families to explore.

Kids and families all had a blast as they tried to grab candy faster than a robotic arm, met NAO humanoid robots and AIBO robotic dogs, saw a law enforcement robot in action, learned about the futuristic RAHT mobile, met peer robotics experts on FIRST Lego League and FIRST Robotics competition teams, and much more. It was a full day of family fun with our Twin Cities robotics partners and robotic friends.

Every April The Works Museum participates in National Robotics Week  with a special day of robotics fun for kids and families. Our presenter partners  demonstrate kid-friendly robotics concepts and real-world applications that inspire and amaze. Kids and families interact with robots of all shapes and sizes, and meet real engineers as well as students who build, program and compete with their robots.

National Robotics Week is all about celebrating the United State’s leadership in robotics technology and development and inspiring students of all ages to pursue careers in these areas.

Save the date for Robot Day 2017 – 4/8/17!
