The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago is celebrating the exciting field of robotics during National Robotics Week. On April 8, 9, 14 and 15 at MSI, guests can interact with cutting-edge robots during a variety of activities and competitions. Guests can interact with a number of robots including PARO®, the furry baby seal therapy robot, and Sphero, the speedy robotic ball guests can control with an app. Demonstrations from university, after-school and hobbyist robotics teams will also take place in the Museum on these select dates during National Robotics Week. Robots designed by Chicago-area student and amateur teams will be on display, and guests can watch a live robotics competition. All activities are included in Museum Entry.
