Whether their purpose is to win a skills contest, vacuum the floor, perform surgery, or deliver a package, robots today are much more versatile than their scary counterparts from 1930’s science fiction films.

How are robots designed and built to succeed at so many diverse tasks? What does it take to program a robot? And what is the future of robots, what will they be able to do tomorrow that they can’t do today?

Explore these questions and more as we investigate The Science Behind Robots, Thursday, March 16 at 9:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. CST.
