roboworld®

Welcome to roboworld®, the world’s largest permanent robotics exhibition! Learn how ‘bots sense, think, and act and explore dozens of interactive exhibit stations in this one-of-a-kind robotics experience. It’s the ultimate robot gathering, right here in Pittsburgh! Are you ready to go robotic?

At roboworld®, explore hands-on robotics exhibits – and even challenge a robot to a game of air hockey! Roboworld highlights the amazing technology that enables robots to sense, think, and act. Carnegie Science Center’s exhibit is known for its Robot Hall of Fame, which features replicas of some of Hollywood’s most famous robots, such as Gort, HAL 9000, and C-3P0.

NEW Robots this summer!

  • Meet MoBots! Take a selfie with Chips, Sweet Lips, Adam 40-80, and Raven – the NEW human-sized robots represent a range of prototypes developed and tested between 1998–2002.
  • Check out our new legen-DAIRY addition to roboworld®  – RoboCow! As robots move out of factories and into homes and cars, they also are finding use in the field – the farmer’s field. Helping to plant, grow, and harvest our foods, they also milk cows in a sort of ‘moo-through car wash set-up.’ And with great results.
  • Tom Servo and Crow, two of the stars of the cult-favorite, Mystery Science Theater 3000, take up residence as the newest fictional ‘bots in our Robot Hall of Fame.

Carnegie Science Center’s roboworld® was made possible by extraordinary collaboration and effort by a broad group of donorsadvisors, Science Center staff, consultants, robotics organizations worldwide, and local universities.

The Science Center’s mission is to inspire the leaders of tomorrow in math and science – what better way to do that than to create the ultimate robotics experience and showcase the technology that will lead us into the future?
