Ever wanted to take a robodog for walkies? Join us at the museum for a fun-filled day of playing around with the latest robot technology, one where you’ll learn how robots are being used in everything from engineering to entertainment, social care, and education. This magically mechanical menagerie will see you sink your metal mitts into all things robotic: you’ll tinker and dance with a Nao robot, teach a robot head to talk to you, programme robots to navigate a maze and even take Miro the robodog for a stroll.
