Science on Saturday events are fun, free science demonstrations at Lincoln Laboratory and are given several times each school year by volunteer scientists and engineers. All local community children aged 5-17 years old, their parents, and their teachers are welcome to attend these events.
Pre-registration is required. Parental/adult escort is required for all children. Electronic devices are not allowed in the facility. Adults must present a valid government-issued photo I.D. Children under the age of 5 are not admitted as this is an educational event for children 5-17 years old.

Robot-Driven Racecars

Saturday, October 27, 2018

Presented by:  Andrew Fishberg and Mark Mazumder, Lincoln Laboratory

Did you know robots can drive cars better than humans? Come test-drive the future of personal transportation with our miniature autonomous racecars!

Explore how driverless cars navigate complex environments brimming with other vehicles, pedestrians, street signs, and buildings. Hands-on activities will demonstrate how robots use sensors and algorithms to see, steer, and race. Root for your favorite car as we autonomously race on a track you help us design!

Come peek under-the-hood of our autonomous racecars to learn more about programming, robots, real-life video games, and going fast!

Please note: There will be only one show instead of the regular two.

Register here for the 10:00 show


When registering, please register an adult first, then a child, then any remaining people in your party.
