Design and build your own model mechanoid, recycled robot or cardboard drone that could make the world a better place.

Robots can make the world a better place in all sorts of ways – working hand in hand with humans to address a variety of global and local challenges. For this artistic workshop, robotic designers and engineers from the UK Robotics and Autonomous System Network, and Imperial College London’s Robotics Postgrads Network have joined forces with creative workshop designer Kate Kennedy to challenge our Festival families to design and build a model robot using artistic and recycled materials.

Design your own robot model to solve an important issue, address a critical problem or simply make life easier. With real life roboticists (and real life robots) in attendance to answer your questions and inspire your own designs, this is a great opportunity to get creative with a marvellous machine and make the world a better place.
