This show is in the Science Stage auditorium and is for general audiences.
Explore a day in the life of Quasi the robot (actually he’s an animatronic!) and Ian (actually he’s a human!).
Quasi and Ian will lead you through the wide world of robots past, present and future, and their exciting adventures on land; under the sea; and in space.
Learn how robots sense, think and act, and maybe even communicate like a robot on stage (good luck!).
Can you 'binary think' like a robot?
Also, investigate careers in robotics. Who knows? Maybe YOU will invent the next revolutionary robot!
Science and technology topics include:
Information Technology (IT), Computers, Math, Careers, and Robotics
