You bring the battle and we'll bring the bots!
Line up and have a go at taking on an opponent in Robot Wars at The Dowse! This is a fun and family friendly activity led by the team from Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) at Victoria University.
Remote controlled robots will be in the galleries. The rules are simple - flip your opponent over to win. Not as nasty as the Robot Wars as seen on TV - as ECS value their robots. A member from their team will also be around for you to ask questions to build your own robot at home.
This is part of the public programmes for the exhibition 'The Future of Work' currently on until Nov 17.
Drop-in style - no bookings required.
