Robots have come a long way from “Danger Will Robinson,” said by Robot from “Lost in Space” and Rosey, from The Jetsons. Robots are used in medicine pretty regularly according to articles in the media and one right here about robots that crawl through the body. If you watch any science TV, you’ll see some amazing bots.

Kids of all ages are into bots. A team from Cambridge Springs High School recently took third place in the National Robotics League (NRL) competition with a robot named Fabius. Check out summer programs with Legos and other programs that start with fun skills and build on them with engineering style ideas. Summer classes are available at Penn State Behrend – click here. Want to start a program of your own? Click here. It all starts with fun and games, and these kids will be running the world.
