Robotics The Tech
Classroom Activities

Exhibition Materials

Like the exhibit, these materials are designed to increase students' understanding about what makes a robot a robot, how robots sense, think, and act as well as the uses and limitations of working robots. They can be used to support a visit to the exhibit or as part of a classroom robotics curriculum. By engaging in these activities, students will be encouraged to question their notions about robots and explore some of the science behind robotic operations.

The following educational materials were developed by the Carnegie Science Center.
