We're so proud to be a part of the WeGo program! Every child should have the opportunity to explore our Dino Hall. With a little help from a quirky robot, they can even do it from their hospital room!

Thanks to an exciting partnership with the WeGo project one of our pediatric patients had the opportunity to explore the dinosaur exhibit at the Maryland Science Center, right from her hospital room! Utilizing tele-presence robotics, patients learn how to drive a robot around the science center, and are able to see, hear, talk and move as if they are really there. Thank you for allowing patients to explore the world outside of our hospital rooms!
