Robot Day

QUAD welcomes the return of Robot Day with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)

Join us for a wide range of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) participatory activities, exhibitions and talks. Visitors to can build their own robot, get hands-on with coding, hear from experts about how robots improve people’s lives and experience virtual reality.  There will be family crafts, a range of static and moving exhibits and inspirational talks and lectures from world leaders in the field of robotics.

Bomb disposal experts from 11 EOD&S Regiment will be giving the public the chance to drive a real Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) robot this Saturday, 6th July, in Derby as part of Robot Day. Visitors can control the Dragon Runner robot and chat to the soldiers who operate it on real missions.
