Discovery Days: Roboduck

Discovery Days: Roboduck

Pupils will use their science, design and technology skills to become engineers!

Using a robotic kit, pupils will individually build their own walking ‘Roboduck’. A great way to show your class motors, cogs and cams in action.

Introducing the concept of university and helping children to think about their futures, our outreach officers will run sessions in school, both before and after the Discovery Day.

In partnership with the Department of Engineering.
