Armies of robots march out of Science Cosmos's labs every single day, but they don’t pose much danger to humanity—even children can control them. Which they do. Using Lego kits, sensors, motors, and age-appropriate programming software elementary- and middle-school students fashion bots that interact with the world around them and carry out instructions. Beyond the robots, Science Cosmos’s educators lead several other classes that get kids excited about science, math, technology, and engineering. For instance, an electronics course uses circuit boards to build devices including an organ that reacts to light and a lie detector to help figure out which parent really ate the Halloween candy.
