MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO (KTVI)- Before taking over St. Louis Science Center, a robot for the Minority Scientist Showcase took over our studio.

'Johnny V' brought things to a stop in our engineering department Friday. Programmers from Kim`s alma mater, University of Missouri - St. Louis, stopped by to test Johnny`s communication with our internet connection.

Our engineering managers loved the visit. They asked lots of questions and took pictures as if they were kids again.
Monday, Johnny showed off some dance moves programmed by 10-year-old John Edwards.

He also helped Kim talk about the final day of the showcase. Kim would emcee the Robotics Competition sponsored by UM-St. Louis and Girls, Inc.
