Discovery Days: Robotics

Discovery Days: Robotics

Unleash your ingenuity to creatively solve a problem with the help of robots!

Pupils will work in small groups to assemble and programme small robots.

They will explore their creativity and use their teamworking skills to solve a problem and learn how robots can interact with humans to help with everyday tasks.

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.
