Some kids got a glimpse of robots at the top of their game Tuesday. The downtown YMCA hosted the mechanical marvels demonstrating how lives are saved.
U.S. Navy personnel showed off some of the robots that are used in war zones across the globe. Some are equipped with cameras. They’re sent ahead to scout hostile areas.
The military hopes this demonstration will interest the children in studying robotics and science.
Lt. Timothy Page said, "This is another part of the Navy. When they think of the Navy, they think of ships, boats. But we have different career fields in the Navy and this is one thing that kind of teaches them. And plus, it’s fun. What kids don't like robots?"
The military also has robots that operate in the water.
