Robotics Day at Spark! Imagination and Science Center

Do you love robots? Celebrate National Robotics Week at Spark! Imagination and Science Center’s Robotics Day. On Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Museum will be all about robots.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn about and manipulate the Mountaineer Area Robotics (MARS) robots, take home a drawing made by a robot, build a brushbot and play with a Sphero.

Admission to the event is free, but participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item which will be donated to a Morgantown food pantry.

“Robotics Day is a great day for kids of all ages to learn about robots and get excited about engineering and technology,” says Julie Bryan, Executive Director of Spark! Imagination and Science Center.

Visitors can also explore Spark’s hands-on exhibits. Visitors can dig for pretend dinosaur fossils, build a ball ramp, explore nanoscience, play dress up, and much more. Visitor’s can also experience Spark’s newest exhibit, the Imagination Playground.

Robotics Day is sponsored by West Virginia University Eberly College of Arts and Sciences.
