Museum plans 'Robotics' show

Thursday, December 14, 2006

   "Robotics," an interactive exhibition from the Carnegie Science Center, will be on view from Saturday through September at the South Florida Science Museum, 4801 Dreher Trail N., West Palm Beach.

   The exhibition will have robotic stations for visitors to operate.

   Some famous faces from the world of robotics — replicas of the B9 from Lost in Space and Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet — are courtesy of HighTechScience.org in Boca Raton. The guest robots will be voiced by WPTV Channel 5's Steve Weagle and Dean Tendrich.

   Visitors on opening weekend will have the chance to meet Bob May, the actor who played the original B9 in the Lost in Space series.

   Some challenges facing visitors will include racing a robot to sort keys, playing tic-tac-toe against a robot, performing simple tasks using robotic arms and figuring out how robots help the hearing impaired.

   "Robotics" will be the largest exhibition the museum has featured in nearly a decade, Exhibits Director Peter Feher said.

   Admission is $9 for adults, $7.50 for seniors, and $6 for children.

   Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
