Cooler than the Magic School Bus

Running on the assumption that it's better late than never, I thought I'd talk about JUMP's latest event. Ok, yes, it's tonight. At 7. But that gives you a whole 4 hours to prepare. Tonight, JUMP's running an interactive workshop with Professor Daniel Weihs of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The workshop will focus on Weihs' work with autonomous robots.
If anything ever takes over the human race, it'll probably be an autonomous robot. These babies can do all sorts of things, like fly unmanned planes and underwater vehicles. The technology even involves micro-robots that can travel though the human body. Like in the Magic School Bus, but real. And not actually involving a school bus. 
Anyways, the event will be hosted by JUMP, BAC & The House and runs until 8:30 at 1992 Yonge Street. It's $5 at the door and includes refreshments.
