Students, faculty and staff are invited to rock with Quasi and other robots at the Carnegie Science Center from 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 20. 

The family-friendly event will celebrate the launch of Rockin' Robots: World Tour, a traveling educational show produced by Carnegie Science Center in collaboration with Cal U.

Rockin' Robots: World Tour travels from the Carnegie Science Center to schools throughout the region. A cost-effective alternative to traditional field trips, the science show is customized for various grade levels and aligned with national and Pennsylvania academic standards.

Children are welcome at the event, where participants can:

  • Interact with real robotic technology at two Adventure Stations, open at 6 p.m.

  • See the Rockin' Robots: World Tour show at 6:30 p.m. in the science center's Works Theater.

  • Meet Quasi, a childlike, animatronic robot who dreams of adventure.

  • Learn more about how robots work in factories, hospitals and homes.

  • Enjoy refreshments.

Guests should RSVP by Oct. 18 to Denise King at 724-938-5938 or king_d@calu.edu.

Quasi and his friends from Rockin' Robots: World Tour also will appear at a media preview Oct. 23 at the Carnegie Science Center. Open to the public, the show will feature an interactive performance with Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO in the Star Wars films.
