LIBRARY EVENT: Robots pay a special visit to Radlett

 Published on: 14th February 2023   |   By: Megan Milstead   |   Category: Uncategorized

Radlett residents will be treated to a special visit from some robots this week.

Two robots will make an appearance at Radlett Library on February 16 and 17.

The free event is open to all, and participants have the chance to race a Sphero Indi robot through the library maze using a tablet app. They can practice their coding skills using the robot, which provide an introduction to computing skills.

They can also put their electronic skills to the test using Logliblocs, an electronic discovery system that helps people to understand the way technology works.

Participants can also build a marble run layout using the Gravitax board, a problem-solving game.

The technology is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning related, except for the Sphero BB8 Star Wars robots which are just for fun.

Digital inclusion librarian Jamie Rowe said: “The library is an exciting place to spend time in. If we have people uninspired by tablets, computers and digital skills – these events can demonstrate that you can achieve unexpected things with a digital device – such as touch-screen skills to race a robot through a library maze.”
