Robots and Future Tech

Get set for a great family day out with plenty of hands-on science, a shockingly good live science show demonstrating electricity and future tech, and a chance to design and compete in the ultimate robot battle in the Invention Studio.

Half Term and Weekend Activities

  • Experience a fantastic live science show. Show times are: 11:00, 12:00, 13:00, 14:30 and 15:30.
  • Get hands-on with fun activities and challenges in the Invention Studio. Our wonderful team of Inspirers will be on hand to help you programme one of our robots to compete in an epic dance off, build and fix robot arms, or create your own tech-themed crafts.
  • Inspirers will also be roaming the exhibition floors with themed science busking, including a mind-blowing VR experience that will transport you to places only robots have ventured before.
