CHICAGO (AP) – A new exhibit at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry will let visitors see firsthand how robots are changing the way people live and work.

The museum announced a new national touring exhibit titled “Robot Revolution” on Monday. It is scheduled to debut at the museum in the spring of 2015.

The 14,000-square-foot exhibit will include about 25 robots. Guests will get to tinker with the robots, watch them interact with each other and try to “beat” a robot’s reflexes.

David Mosena is the museum’s president and CEO. He says the field of robotics is growing exponentially.

Mosena says the exhibit will help guests see how robots work and how they may change lives. It also will help kids explore careers in the field.

The exhibit is supported by Google.
