Robot Mania returns to the Science Mill during Spring Break

Science museum hosts two weeks of special robotics activities

Feb. 8, 2021—Johnson City, TX—The Science Mill in Johnson City will host Robot Mania this spring break, with special robotics-themed activities at the science museum every day from Monday, March 8 through Friday, March 19. This year’s new challenge: performing “surgery” with bionic robot arms! Visitors will also find robots that battle, draw and build, robot movies and “Code a Human Robot” demos, along with 50+ interactive exhibits in the museum and outside in the Science & Art Park.

Special activity stations will run Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 1:30-3:30 p.m., and Sunday from 1:00-3:00 p.m. At the Battle Bots station, visitors will try to master speed and timing to turn their opponent’s bot upsidedown. At Jumbo Robo Operation, they can play a largescale version of the classic board game “Operation”, and at set times throughout the day they can help educators program a “human robot” to make lemonade. Scribit, a drawing robot, will scale the museum’s walls to create a multi-colored mural, and stations throughout the museum will play special conversations with engineers, programmers and other STEM professionals who work in robotics. The short PBS film, “FIRST There Were Humans, Then There Were Machines” will play throughout the day in the museum’s theater.
