(Dover, NH) – Get ready to geek out at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire! For the second year, the museum is hosting a meet-up and exhibition of robots from around the Seacoast. Robo-Palooza is set for Saturday, April 19 from 11 – 3:00 pm at the Children’s Museum and all robotics activities are included in regular paid admission.
Seacoast Robotics is co-hosting the event with the Children’s Museum as a grand finale to National Robotics Week. Robotics programs and teams from all over the Seacoast will converge on the Museum for an afternoon of fun with robots including demonstrations from Dover and Durham FIRST Robotics Competition teams. The UNH LunaCats team will also be on-site with their student-built NASA competition robot. Museum visitors will have a chance to meet and talk with the kids and adults involved in all of these robotics programs, and learn more about how to get involved.
No reservations are required for Robo-Palooza. Admission to the Children’s Museum of NH is $9 per person for children and adults, $8 for seniors, and free for babies under 12 months old. Museum members are also admitted free. If you purchase a museum family membership during your first visit, the amount you paid in admission is deducted from the membership cost.
Thanks to the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire for this great event and press release!
FYI: This is a current favorite in my house. My 3, 5 and 6 year olds have been building their own “Zoob Bots”. I have loved this toy for the kids and it is a reasonable price. NOTE: This toy recommendation is not in any way related to or recommended by the Children’s Museum. Just one of my family’s favorite robot-themed toys!
