Friday 3rd March, 2pm - 4pm - Sphero Bolt Robots at Carmondean Library, Livingston North Partnership Centre - No booking required
As part of the Borrow A Researcher series in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University, West Lothian Council Libraries are hosting a range of Family Fridays across March 2023. Borrow A Researcher is an event series generated from the Engaging Libraries Lothian Lugs project. This was designed to bring events to local West Lothian communities that were specifically tailored to public interest.
Heriot-Watt University's Outreach team will be running a drop-in session from 2-4pm on Friday 3rd March where you can come and take part in interactive robotics challenges - appropriate for ages 5-10!
You'll have the chance to control Sphero Bolt robots - an educational robot we use with primary, secondary and university students in projects to increase confidence in STEM and coding. We use these robots to share an insight into some of the work roboticists and engineers do everyday at the university, from topics as diverse as marine biology research to building robots for our homes.
