On Tuesday, July 15, 2008, at 6:30 p.m. Jack Burrus will be bringing the highly-acclaimed “World of Robots” program to the Kearney Public Library. This entertaining and educational program features a talking, moving, advanced computer-programmable robot with an arm, wrist and hand that is sure to grab the attention of the audience. The “World of Robots” is designed to help humans understand how robots are used today and what role they will play in our future. Through captivating images and interactive demonstrations, Mr. Burrus reinforces the importance of science, math and reading in our everyday lives.

“But the World of Robots isn't just for kids”, says Ruth Tresselt of Schaumburg Township Public Library in Schaumburg, Illinois. "The children learned a lot about science, robots and the future; and I noticed that the parents were extremely interested also."

Burrus is a professional educator and speaker with a true gift for translating technical concepts into understandable ideas. With his advanced robots, he has traveled to thousands of schools and libraries throughout 15 states, engaging students of all ages.

The program is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. and last approximately 60 minutes. The best photo and video opportunities are during the last 15 minutes of the program.

The World of Robots is developed and presented by Jack Burrus Presentations in association with Burrus Research Associates, a leader in science and technology education serving schools, businesses and international corporations for over two decades.
