National Science Week – Let’s get Robo-coding!

National Science Week is here from the 12-20th August. QUT is celebrating this year by welcoming Robotronica back to QUT’s Gardens Point campus to reveal the most up to date advancements and innovations in the fields of robotics and interactive design.

Get interactive and learn to program a robot at the Cubes Code-a-Robot.  Stretch your mind and hear from Professor Ron Arkin about all the sneaky things robots can do and the ethical and moral implications of this. Plus, you can meet Pepper!

Pepper the Robot meeting people

Robotronica is a one day only event to finish National Science Week off with a bang so make sure you mark it in your diaries.

Can’t wait until Robotronica to learn more about robotics and interactive design? Have a look at QUT Library’s Robotics and Mechatronics Library Subject Guide to get your innovative juice flowing.

Make sure to let us know what science inspired things you are up to this National Science Week at @QUTLibrary and using #natsciwk.

National Science Week

From the 13th – 21st August it is National Science Week. All over Australia people are celebrating the wonders of science and acknowledging the work Australian scientists have done in contributing to the world’s knowledge.

This event isn’t just for scientists, there are events for everyone young and old! The National Science Week Events page lets you search by your own location and there are even events online. Why not Journey into the Deep or get hands on with science?

At QUT Library this week we have a lot of events going on for National Science Week so make sure you pop in and say hi to our friendly staff!
