European Robotics Week is fast approaching and Bristol and the BRL (Bristol Robotics Laboratory) are right at the heart of it. The week aims to connect the robotics community to the public, and engage kids in educational activities.

“Your children will be helping a team of researchers to build 100 robots to treat artificial cancer cells”

 

Held at the At-Science Centre on Wednesday the 25 November the BRL and euRobotics AISL will be hosting a Robot Buildathon for ages 5-14. Your children will be helping a team of researchers to build 100 robots to treat artificial cancer cells as well as interacting with other researchers, educators and students at robot stations throughout the museum.
