Workshop: Robot Rap

Could robots really entertain us or are they just a source of fun as we laugh at their failure to climb stairs?

Join us as we create a robot rap with our ‘Ohbots’! Ohbots are easy to program and have robot heads that can blink, nod, shake, rap and sense a beat. We’ll work together to create a mechanical ensemble performance. Rappers of the world prepare for your obsolescence!

About Ohbots: Used in schools, colleges and universities around the world these little heads enable everyone to develop an understanding of what is involved in making a human like robot take on a real world social tasks.

This workshop runs at 16:30 on Friday, 12:30 on Saturday, and 17:30 on Sunday.

Free of charge. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
