A Pub Guide to… Robots

An evening devoted to discussing the effect of robots on society, as experts outline and explain the latest research, as well as an exploration of what the future looks like in the arena of robotics.

Visitors will have the unique opportunity to build and take home their own robot in a session led by Science Museum robotics expert, John Mumford.

Two leading robotics specialists from the University of Aberystwyth, Andy Shaw and Mark Neal, will discuss the latest news in robotics as well as revealing their latest innovations: demonstrations include a large helium balloon robot which will be used on the next mission to Mars; a small robot on wheels programmed to simulate fear and a robot boat with a sail that can navigate without GPS.

The Dana Centre Pub Guide to… events are designed for even the most science-shy to glean a basic understanding of some of the big issues in science today.

This event is one of a series on robots. All events take place at the Dana Centre – the Science Museum’s bar and café for adults to discuss contemporary science, technology, the environment and medicine
