Saturday 9 March
10am – 4pm
Coventry Transport Museum
A major science and technology event that will explore all things robotic is coming to Coventry this March and is aimed at everyone from toddlers to academics.
Robot Day will take place at the Coventry Transport Museum on Saturday, March 9, and aims to entertain and inspire people of all generations with a host of interactive activities, displays, presentations and performances.
The event, which is being organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) with support from Coventry University, Culture Coventry and Imagineer Productions, is part of British Science Week which runs from March 8 until March 17.
Visitors to the free event will have the chance to build their own robot, get hands-on with coding, hear from experts about how robots improve people’s lives and experience virtual reality. There are also bomb disposal, industrial robot and drone displays.
A special performance has also been commissioned that will see Imagineer Productions’ six-metre high Lady Godiva perform with the Urban Astronaut and the Hummingbird drone.
On top of that, there will be craft and dance workshops, a range of static and moving exhibits and inspirational talks and lectures from world leaders in the field of robotics such as Kevin Warwick, who claims to be the world’s first cyborg after experimenting with implants that can control external devices.
