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.
