WELLESLEY, Mass. -- The eighth annual exhibition of Wellesley College's Robotics Design Studio will be held Monday, Jan. 26, from 4:30-6 pm at the Wellesley College Science Center, Sage Lounge, 2nd floor. The program is free and the public is invited.

During January's Wintersession classes at Wellesley, robotics students have built "kinetic sculptures” that interact with their environment using sensors, motors and programs running on small computers. The materials include Lego bricks, craft materials including felt and Styrofoam and lots of hot glue. Past exhibitors have built car washes, shape sorters and scenes from “The Wizard of Oz.”

“Come and see what the creative, programming and engineering skills of this year’s class will produce,” said robotics teacher Scott Anderson of Wellesley's Computer Science Department. Light refreshments will be served.
