Experience the cool and quirky with a huge range of robotics and tech activations with Robotica: Festival of Futurism at Scienceworks this month.

Come ask the question: "what will life be like alongside robots?" Robotics and technology already play a major role supporting us today – but imagine what changes there will be when robots are more and more incorporated into our everyday lives.

From 10am–3pm, Scienceworks will open its doors to a wide range of collaborators and exhibitors and together host a tech expo featuring interactive robotics, technology, VR, challenges, makerspaces, exhibits, a range of speakers and even a DJ!

Speakers include sustainable technology champion Dianne McGrath, Sam Kingsley from Brainary to explore the future of companion robots, and more.
