National Geographic engineer Alan Turchik shares his expertise with 4-H and describes some ways that robots are used to explore the deep ocean. This summer, National Geographic Education invites you to build and submit your own robotic solution by August 1, for a movie ticket voucher to ROBOTS 3D* and the chance to have your solution published in a new National Geographic Kids book, Everything Robotics!

Here's some 'bot history for your #ScienceSaturday! Westinghouse created ELEKTRO and in 1940, SPARKO, for the World’s Fair in New York. Elektro could perform 26 movements and “speak” more than 70 words, which were played on turntables inside its seven-foot body. Sparko, the robot dog, could wag its tail, bark and stand on its hind legs.

Here's some 'bot history for your #ScienceSaturday! Did you know Leonardo da Vinci designed a “Mechanical Knight,” which is thought to be the first humanoid robot design? His sketches and concepts of robotic movement were so advanced, they inspired the creation of robots used by NASA and the International Space Station today.
The gecko has an amazing grip, with the ability to walk upside down! It is a perfect explanation as to why these creatures have inspired the production of "gecko tape."
