Robots Take Over Carnegie Science Center with Roboworld

From the Carnegie Science Center:
Carnegie Science Center...revealed plans and exhibit details for roboworld™, the world’s largest and most comprehensive permanent robotics exhibition, opening June 13, 2009.

The $3.5 million exhibition will permanently occupy a 6,000 square-foot exhibit area on the second floor of the Science Center previously used for touring exhibitions and will feature several dozen hands-on, interactive exhibit stations focusing on the themes of robotic sensing, thinking, and acting.

“roboworld™ will showcase the latest in robotics technology — much of which has been developed in this region — and help visitors understand the tremendous impact robotics has on everyday life for each and every one of us,” said Ann Metzger, Co-Director of Carnegie Science Center. “For the past several years, we have been working with partners, both local and around the world, to shape and mold this exhibition into a comprehensive examination of robotics technology and the wide array of careers involved in this cutting-edge research and industry. We are excited to finally reveal the amazing and exciting exhibits and experiences that comprise the world-class, one-of-a-kind robotics exhibition that is roboworld™.”
