Radical Robots

Anyone who has children or works with kids knows the popularity of robots. Take Ricky Ricotta's Mighty Robot and Robot Riot!, add WALL-E, R2D2 and everything in between, and you've got a full-blown case of robot-mania on your hands; but what is the cure?

Try the Radical Robots program, presented by Mad Science of Chicago, which harnesses the excitement of robotics and gives fourth- through sixth-graders the opportunity to learn through fun, hands-on experiments. Kids will learn a different robotics concept each week and apply these concepts to build a simple robot.

Another cure for robot fever is Robotics. Kids can easily step into the field of robotics by designing, building and operating various types of robots.
