Robots take center stage at Wexford Elementary

By Staff Report
Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, 9:00 p.m.
 

Science took center stage at Wexford Elementary School as students, staff and the PTO representatives welcomed the Carnegie Science Center and Quasi the Robot for the Rockin' Robots World Tour.

Students kicked off the day with an assembly presented by Quasi the Robot and Carnegie Science Center instructor Michaela Williams.

Students learned how a robot works and how they are helpful to humans.

They explored binary code through the use of plastic tubes tuned to musical pitches and were able to witness how remote surgery can be conducted through the use of robotic hands.

After the presentation, the students helped Quasi settle down for his nap. They then proceeded to various stations in the gymnasium.

Some of the activities included programming a robotic car and leading a blindfolded partner through a maze with just words and directions.
