Mass. -- Wellesley College will host its ninth
Robotics Design Studio exhibition on Wednesday, Jan. 26, from 4:30-6
pm in the Science Center’s Sage Lounge, on the building’s
second floor. The event is free and open to the public.
During Wellesley’s January Wintersession, robotics students
have built what they call "kinetic sculptures" that interact
with their environment using sensors, motors and programs running
on small computers.
“The materials are Lego bricks, craft materials like felt
and styrofoam and lots of hot glue,” said Wellesley computer
scientist Franklyn Turbak, who teaches the course. “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.”
