A Pittsburgh Steelers player and a robot named Quasi will join Cal U's Homecoming crowd Oct. 16 at Roadman Park.

Steelers safety Ryan Mundy will be signing autographs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. at the Steelers University - Coca-Cola Traveling Great Hall Exhibit, located in the parking lot near Adamson Stadium. The exhibition will be open from 1:30-3:30 p.m., after the Homecoming parade.

Highlighting the history of the Steelers organization, the Great Hall is a touring version of the museum at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. The exhibition features photos, jerseys, multimedia segments and the opportunity to broadcast a play-by-play call of a great Steelers moment.

Fans who stop by and register will have a chance to win tickets to the Oct. 17 Steelers vs. Browns game or gift cards to the Steelers Sideline Stores. 

Not far from the Great Hall, Quasi the Robot will make his debut in the Carnegie Science Center's Rockin' Robots: World Tour show, produced in partnership with Cal U.

Quasi is a childlike animatronic robot who dreams of adventure and introduces visitors to robots hard at work in factories, hospitals and homes. The interactive show includes multiple adventure stations and many hands-on activities for children.

Rockin' Robot: 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.

The activities wrap up at 3:30 p.m., when the Vulcan football team takes on Slippery Rock University at 3:30 p.m. at Hepner-Bailey Field at Adamson Stadium.
