ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Jarvis is the exhibit’s ROBOTHESPIAN, a life-size humanoid robot that is ready to dance, sing and even take a selfie with you! And just like you need hands to grab objects, robots need devices at the ends of their arms to do things. You’ll learn about those devices — called end effectors — in GET A GRIP. Who wants to program a robot’s path? You can in MISSION:CODE! Step in front of the blue sensor in i-SIGHT to see how the light pulses used in lidar see you! Steady and precise hands are needed if you want to RACE A ROBOT and win! CO-OPERATION gives you the opportunity to show off your surgical skills by slowly and carefully removing pieces from a patient’s body, similar to what is done in robotic surgery. Can you lace up a pair of sneakers using special tools? Try it at LACE ’EM UP! And snap together a bunch of smaller robots to create a larger robot in BUILD A BOT. See what you can program your robot to do!
