Explore the amazing world of robotics.
Details on October programs are included below: Rochester Robotics Saturday–Monday, October 12–14: 11am-3pm (Special extended program for Columbus Day weekend) Explore the amazing world of robotics. Visitors can: Meet high school students from FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics teams across the Finger Lakes region (on October 13 and 14) and learn about FIRST and getting involved at almost any age. Control LEGO robots as they move across different terrains. Learn about how local doctors are using robots to perform delicate surgeries and save lives. See a display from the da Vinci robotics system and learn what it is and how it works. Take various technologies apart at our take-apart station and see what is inside and how it works. Get hands-on at a robotics station with our NXT robots and experiment with changing aspects of the robot so that it can do different things, like using an IR sensor to detect it's surroundings and automatically change direction. Build robotic arms out of wood and connect hydraulic and/or pneumatic actuators at a hands-on station to learn how to give the arms motion and make them work. Explore robotics in the Alien Worlds and Androids exhibition in the RMSC Riedman Gallery. October 13: Presented by the Penfield FIRST Robotics Team 1511. October 14: Presented by the Penfield FIRST Robotics Team 1511 and Spencerport FIRST Robotics Team 3015....
