Join us for a fun adventure into the world of robots, where your imagination can help create something amazing.  Design, create, and bring your very own robot to life - using and reusing old materials - with the help of artist and performer, Tat Vision.

Imagine if your robot masterpiece could be a really useful helper! Robots use AI (like a super-smart brain) to do all sorts of important jobs, from making things in factories to helping doctors in hospitals, and even doing chores at home. Our academics are excited to hear your ideas: What jobs could robots do that would make our future even better?

Don't miss out—come build the future with us!

BotBuilders! is a free family event running Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 February. Drop-in any time between 11:00 and 15:00 to build your robot.

We'll provide basic materials but please feel free to bring along your own clean and safe recycled materials, such as cardboard boxes, plastic containers, tetra Pak packaging, plastic bottles, and bottle tops. Please do not bring egg boxes, toilet roll tubes or any packaging that has previously contained nuts.

Join artist Sarah Hamilton Baker for a story workshop where children's imaginations come to life with the help of ChatGPT.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence language model that can understand and generate written content. It can answer questions, engage in conversations, provide information, and compose various written content, including articles, social media posts, code and emails.

Witness the transformation as Chat GPT weaves children’s ideas about setting, characters, twists and turns into a unique short story.

Following their storytelling adventure, children can create and take home their own storybooks complete with words, illustrations and decorations.

Suitable for children aged 5+ years but all welcome.
