Visit the Low Life Labs to enter an interactive and multi-sensory world that helps students learn about the ways robots and humans move, think, and exist as they experience the world around them. Start your journey in the lobby, and then proceed to the labs where you can choose to enter one of four areas: Thinking, Sensing, Being, or Moving. Each lab provides a description of the concept that is being explored and introduces a series of interactive games and activities. As entertaining as they are revealing, these activities help students recognize the complexity of human responses and the challenges faced by scientists in robotics development. A great resource to use as an enrichment activity!

tag(s): senses (32)

In the Classroom

Use the activities site on the interactive whiteboard or projector as review games or as activities to illustrate the technology behind building robots, or how humans use their senses. As an accompanying activity, have students make venn diagrams comparing how humans and robots compute through their "senses." Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).
