Robot Day – Explore Robotics with Your Family!

Robots are taking over the museum!

Every April, The Works Museum participates in National Robotics Week with a special day of robotics fun. Kids and families interact with robots of all shapes and sizes, as well as meet the engineers and students who build, program, and compete with their robots.

Learn about how robots are used to teach, do science, and complete tasks with kid-friendly demos. Some of the robots can even be maneuvered by the kids! With over a dozen activities and demonstrations, this special family STEM day is the perfect opportunity to explore together.

Saturday, April 13, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

$9 Pre-registered. $12 at the door. Free for members.

Ready to plan your day? Here are a few tips from experienced Robot Day families:

  • Come early. Robot Day starts at 9 a.m. (before our normal open hours). This is a great time to have fast access to presenters.
  • Bring cash or a check if you plan to lunch at Robot Day. Papa John’s Pizza will sell pizza over lunch (and donate 20% of proceeds back to The Works Museum). This is a great opportunity to take an onsite lunch break, but they don’t take credit cards. Or pack your own lunch or snacks to eat in our lunch room.
  • Save money by purchasing your admission in advance ($9 per person over age 2) or consider a family membership. Members receive free admission to Robot Day and a membership pays for itself in just 2 visits for a family of 4.
  • Consider bringing your teen too. While The Works Museum focuses on programs for kids ages 5-12, Robot Day is great for anyone ages 4 and up (including our adult guests!)
  • Go at your own pace. All activities are open for the whole event, but you don’t have to do them all. See what inspires your young engineer and stay as long as you like at those activities.

Learn about our family activities and outings including events, Explore It! days and signature events including  Tech Fest and Girl Time, all fun opportunities to interact with technology, robotics, engineering and STEM education partners from the entire Twin Cities area.
