‘Robot Zoo’ to debut at ExplorationWorks in Helena


The newest exhibit at ExplorationWorks, “The Robot Zoo,” will make its debut on Saturday.

The Robot Zoo features robot animals and hands-on activities that illustrate fascinating real-life characteristics, such as how a chameleon changes colors and how a fly walks on the ceiling. The three larger-than-life-size animated robots include a chameleon and a platypus. Also featured is a house fly with a 3-foot wingspread.

The exhibit is based on the book “The Robot Zoo” that was conceived, edited and designed by Marshall Editions of London, England.

“We’re excited to bring this exhibit to our community. Not only does it feature robots – something we’re very familiar with here at ExWorks – it is also a very hands-on experience,” Matt Jetty, ExplorationWorks exhibits and facilities director, said in a news release.
