Robotics in Space is a direct Space STEM Workshop and looks at the use of robotics in current day space exploration.
We take a look at how robots are used and developed and the challenges that engineers and scientists face when designing them to withstand a harsh space environment.
Groups are divided into teams and using simple materials design, construct and operate their own Robotic Arm to lift various objects over a certain distance. Whichever team is successful wins a small prize!
With the addition of the latest VR technology, participants are then given the individual opportunity to "dock" the Space X Dragon to the ISS using the CanadaArm 2 as a finale to the session.
Suitable for KS2 and KS3
Available only as a full workshop or event (2 hours)
