Welcome: Special Feature: Robot News:
Welcome to the Robotics Lab. On the following pages discover what I've been discovering for years, that building things can be fun and you might learn something while you're at it.

Be sure to have a look at the History of Robotics page, you'll be surprised at how long the idea of a robot has been around for.

I've jammed as many links to other fun and exciting web sites on the Fun Robot Stuff page. You'll find cool museum exhibits, sites showcasing other peoples robots, some games, and lots of LEGO® links.

Also be sure to stop and take a look at the Lab Action Shots section to see if you can see yourself hard at work, or hardly working ;)!

But most of all have fun and I'll see you in class!!
