RobotWorx Donates Robots to COSI Columbus
RobotWorx is always looking for ways to educate and inspire younger generations to learn about the industrial robot industry. We have the privilege of designing a educational cart, consisting of two Motoman K3S robots and MRC control units, to dance to music at the push of a button. These dancing robots will be on display at the Columbus, Ohio's Center of Science and Industry (COSI).
The donated robots will be unveiled on Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 at 11am as part of the COSI Science Day: Robotics.
"We're excited about this opportunity to collaborate with COSI and educate students about how industrial robots work." Keith Wanner, RobotWorx president said.
RobotWorx and COSI have been working together for the past year to iron out all the details of the exhibit and partnership. While the K3S robots are commonly used for welding and material handling in industrial settings, their COSI jobs will be more light-hearted. The K3S robots will be programmed to disco dance and assemble magnetic puzzles.
RobotWorx has donated robots to universities, sponsored robotics clubs (4H RoboKids) and contest events (National Robotics Challenge), and hosted dozens of educational tours. RobotWorx was also profiled in the Modern Marvels: Welding episode, and most recently two RobotWorx robots starred in NBC's Knight Rider.
