Robot Crafts


Robot Crafts


This is an activity we have hosted during previous Robotics Weeks. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we decided to put this online for any and all to enjoy.

The aim of this workshop is to inspire creativity around the theme of robotics, by getting people to make their own models from various crafting materials.

We provide a selection of ideas and templates to get your imagination going.

Remember: Robots can come in all shapes and sizes.

There is also a gallery below of people's efforts, which, we hope, you will help us add to with images of your creations.
