When we think of programming robots, we often think of sci-fi films and extravagant scientific laboratories. We think of scientists in lab coats behind closed doors. But what about your local library? Did you ever imagine exploring and testing out robotics there? Transformed for the workshop duration, participants can take part in a practical coding session with Heriot-Watt University computer scientists. Join us for an exciting and interactive exploration into the programming of robots!

Workshop participants will be introduced to different examples of social robots, from pets to human-like social robots. Following this, participants will be given the chance to learn how to program some of these robots! Employing a distance learning tool for robotics, you’ll have access to simulation software and will learn the basics of block coding – the data set of instructions which affect robot’s movements, conversation and interaction!
