The Robots are Coming!
Two arenas of destruction where robots will do battle on 10th, 11th and 12th April at the Museum.
Robot Family Workshops
Arena One will be hosting robot building workshops (spaces are limited on these workshops, please register early on the day). If you ever wanted to know what it would be like to be a roboteer, then this is the perfect opportunity. A chance to work as a team to build a real robot before taking it into battle - great hands-on family fun. This unique experience teaches the participants how robots work using Science & Technology and is suitable for ages 7 years and upward.
Large arena battles by Robo Challenge Teams
Arena Two is where the professionals do battle behind a bullet proof screen. These machines have to be seen to be believed! Some are fitted with angle grinders and some with flame throwers...all intent on being the last one standing!
There is no additional charge to take part in the above activity and normal Museum admission prices apply.
