The world’s most unbounded sandbox is back! Robots and humans of all ages (0-120) are invited to go on an archaeological dig, bring a picnic or just roll up your sleeves and get sandy. After all, play is the key to unlocking innovative thinking (just ask your brain’s frontal cortex). Watch for ingenious programming supported by Shaw and Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary.
