ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta’s Fernbank Museum of Natural History is preparing for a day focused on robot-related activities and demonstrations.

The museum announced Wednesday that it will hold an interactive family event called “Robots Day,” on Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Visitors will be offered the opportunity to learn how to program robots, as well as observe a variety of different types of robots in action. A student-led robotics team from Atlanta’s Grady High School will showcase its Frisbee-throwing robot.

The Georgia Tech Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines will also allow visitors to interact with four hi-tech robots of its own.

The day is inspired by the museum’s latest National Geographic movie, “Robots,” which is currently being screened inside the venue’s IMAX theater.
