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. For more, visit quelab.net or email board@quelab.net.

I Ain't Afraid of No Ghosts

If your inner Hallow-phile ever wondered how haunted houses feature ballroom dancing ghosts or talking severed heads, you're in luck. Quelab (1112 Second Street NW) reveals all the tricks of the special effects-laden trade in its "Haunted Lab" today. From 6 to 10 p.m., view a showcase and meet the makers of bubbling chemistry labs, robotic animatronics, realistic-looking corpses, and other creepy creations crafted from recycled and off-the-shelf parts. Admission is $10, or free for children 12-and-under and Quelab members. For more and for details on Quelab memberships, visit quelab.net.
