Our grandchildren in CO love to go to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science . In fact they have a membership so they can go whenever the special exhibits change. 

The special exhibit we enjoyed was the Robot Revolution supported by

Here are some of the pictures I took...

These robots are playing soccer. We saw the one on the right make a goal.

It was fun watching the robot solve the Rubix cube in 18 turns...


We rearranged the cube and it took the robot 2.137 sec to find the solution. You can see the images it captured from the 6 sides of "our" cube. It will take 19 turns to solve it.

Colby stared at the eyes of this robot and then the robot followed Colby's movements with his head. 

Hallie is playing tic-tac-toe with the robot.

Hallie beat the robot. Good job, Hallie!

Sadie gave it a try with Henry watching.

The robot

Versaball can grasp objects of various sizes and shapes.

TOPY OSCAR (Optical Stair Climbing Robot can climb steps as steep as 45 degrees. It can investigate  unstable buildings and send information to humans.

Some of you may have this robot in your house.
We also toured the permanent exhibits - the Egyptian mummies exhibit, the Gem and Minerals exhibit, Space Odyssey, Prehistoric Journey, and Discovery Zone. My husband and I were especially impressed with the dinosaurs in the Prehistoric Journey. Colby and I really enjoyed seeing all of the gems and minerals on display.

Here is a picture of the 3 older grandchildren in the Discovery Zone. Henry was too busy having too much fun.

It was a fun day for all. We even enjoyed a delicious lunch in the T-Rex Cafe which is very reasonably priced.
