Event Description

Join us Friday, August 24th at the Bradbury Science Museum for fun with robotics teams of all kinds and their programmable friends.

Project Y High School FRC team; Quadrumaniacs FLL team; SumoBot competitors and many others will demonstrate their remote-manipulation abilities at a Robotics Night open to all at the Bradbury Science Museum. Some of the teams will even provide an opportunity for visitors to manipulate the robots themselves!

Hosted by the Bradbury Science Museum Association and generously supported by New Mexico Bank & Trust, visitors will also have an opportunity to see the robots used by organizations such as the Laboratory, Los Alamos County Police Department, and University of New Mexico-Los Alamos.

In addition to having an occasion to interact with some of the robots, those interested in starting up robotics teams at their schools will have a chance to learn more about what it takes to make that happen. It’s not too early to start even at the elementary-school level.

Participating student teams will be eligible for fun prizes and small cash awards to support their involvement in this activity.
