Destination Space: Robots
Join us at Dynamic Earth as part of our exciting project Destination Space! Our ‘space-tacular’ Robots event will be celebrating some of the amazing science and technology developed by engineers to support life in space. Discover how robots are used to help astronauts like Tim Peake aboard the International Space Station and how we can control these robots to explore places beyond human reach. Programming sessions will be available throughout the day for junior robot engineers.
