Visitors will have an opportunity to see robots in action from academia and private companies, both in the U.S. and around the world.

Interactive exhibits will demonstrate robotic skills, including a five-finger hand developed by Schunk in Germany with nine motors, 20 joints and elastic fingertips that can gently grasp and hold objects, similar to humans.

The exhibition is divided into four main areas: cooperation, skills, smarts and locomotion.

Tickets for non-members cost $17.95 for visitors 3-18, $19.95 for those 65 and older and $23.95 for other adults.
