Two hundred new robots — billed to be the largest collection ever assembled in the Twin Cities — will be on display today at the University of Minnesota.
The robots, created over six weeks by engineering students, include an electric can-crushing robot, an automatic strumming guitar and robot dancing frogs. Students received a kit of parts, including a computer, and they were allowed to add up to $30 worth of their own materials.
The display is open from 2:40 to 4:30 p.m. in the McNamara Alumni Center, 200 Oak St. SE., Minneapolis. It is free, open to the public and suitable for people of all ages. More information is available here.
