A cutting-edge collection of robots from around the world.

Once mostly found in industrial settings, robots now assist us more and more in everyday life. They join us at work and at play, help us in hospitals and offices, and even just keep us company. In Robot Revolution, you'll discover the ways in which robots can contribute to our lives, now and in the very near future.

The exhibit features four areas of robotics design, each an aspect of the roles robots can play as they interact with—and take cues from—humans. These robots work hard (or, in certain cases, play hard) so you may also see one taking a break for expert attention in the Robo Garage—an inside peek at modern robotic environments.

From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings to underwater robots, solar cars and sustainable cities, transform how you think about engineering with "Dream Big," narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges.
Join engineers as they push the limits of innovation in unexpected and amazing ways. With its inspiring stories of human grit and aspiration and extraordinary visuals, this film reveals the compassion and creativity that drive engineers to create better lives for people and a more sustainable future for us all. In the BRAND NEW Giant Dome Theater!
