Kids and the PR2 at The Tech Museum

Willow Garage has teamed up with The Tech Museum in San Jose, California for a very special exhibit. 

Our PR2 robot will be spending the coming weekends at The Tech Museum, giving the public access to the PR2 and letting kids interactively program the robot.  Kids ranging in age from 3 to 103 will be able to see and manipulate the PR2 in simulator and then run programs on the PR2.  
 
Willow Garage has six computer stations available for programming, and will be demoing and answering questions about the robot.  This is a great opportunity for friends, family and the surrounding community to spend time with one of the most advanced robots in the world.  We have fun activities for everyone to engage in to get energized about robotics and technology.

PR2 will be spending its Saturdays and Sundays at The Tech through June 10.  The robot will be hanging out from 12:00 noon until 5:00 pm.
 
PR2 already has one weekend at The Tech Museum under its belt, where kids programmed the robot to dance the Macarena and Another One Bites the Dust!
