The Robot Zoo is a study of the form and function of real animals through their biomechanical counterparts – robots. In The Robot Zoo, the “animals” are mechanical, programmable robots, displayed in the context of animal habitats. On display, you’ll see a bat, a chameleon, a giraffe, a grasshopper, a house fly, a platypus, a rhino and a giant squid.
Going through the The Robot Zoo, children will learn about shapes, movement, special body parts (like mouths) called adaptations, animals’ ability to sense and respond through touch, smell, sight and radar, why different textures and coloring are important for animals, and much more!
The Robot Zoo Playdate: Saturday, January 17, 2015, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
We invite you to join us at the Austin Nature & Science Center on Saturday morning! Check out The Robot Zoo, observe a robotics team in action, make robotic art, and create a simple solar machine. This event is free!
Before you leave home, print off some Austin Nature & Science Center Bingo cards to make your outing even more fun.
