Visitors to the Virginia Air & Space Center can witness future innovators and engineers in action when local FIRST Robotics teams perform interactive demonstrations with their award-winning robots. These robotics challenge teams offer students grades 9 – 12 a "real-world engineering" opportunity to design, engineer and build their own robots. Visitors can observe these incredible robots (and students) in action and discover how robotics plays a role in current NASA missions, including the Mars Curiosity rover, through interactive exhibits. Guests can also experience hands-on robotics through a variety of activities including, the X-Box Mars landing game, Rover Races, RC buggy obstacle course, Radical Robots live science demonstrations, and Capture an Asteroid games. Robotics live science demonstrations and hands-on activities may vary each weekend.
Admission Fee: Purchase a robot kit for $10 and work with museum staff to build your own robot!
