They're Coming to Get You, Barbara

Robots aren't very threatening when they're punching each other's plastic parts on a board game or in a horrendous Hugh Jackman movie. But when they finally garner the intelligence to take over the world and enslave humanity—well, that's a different story. Add a few of your own conspiring contraptions to the mechanical horde at Quelab (1112 Second Street NW) during March of the Robots. From 6 to 9 p.m. today, $10 allows you to view home-built robots, meet the makers and construct your own. You can even battle them to fine-tune their skills for their upcoming onslaught.
