Following the recent announcement, National Museums Liverpool’s venues have reopened, including their highly anticipated AI: More Than Human Exhibition at the World Museum.

Robert Rovers 

Their first event is Robot Rovers. A programming workshop for families with children ages 7+, with free, priority access for SEND visitors and SEND families.

The workshop is ideal for any young people who enjoy learning how things work. Those who get stuck in with the why and how or have a love for robots.

The workshop uses LEGO Rovers, which are programmed through simple interfaces on computer screens. Families will have a Rover each and so can share the roles among themselves. This means if someone is a great driver, they can take the wheel and if someone is a problem-solver, they can think about the obstacles and challenges. The aim is to work together and engage with some top of the range science.

About the event

Robots are the future but can you control them? Try your hand at programming the Lego Robot Rovers with University of Manchester’s Computer Programming team.

This event is suitable for all families with children ages 7+ and is inclusive of families with SEND children. For covid-security, families will be assigned a table each to explore their robots from. They ask that parents and guardians help them to maintain social distancing during the workshop and with masks worn where possible.
