Wicksteed Park’s Science Café to feature University academic talking about Junkbots

Date 13.03.2017

Visitors to Wicksteed Park will be able to learn about science in an informal way this week as Dr Scott Turner from the University of Northampton will be giving a talk as part of British Science Week.

The Science Café was established at Wicksteed Park as its creator Charles Wicksteed was an inventor and a respected successful engineer, and it gives visitors the opportunity to engage in science activities over coffee and cake in an informal and fun environment.

Dr Turner, Associate Professor in Computing and Immersive Technologies, will be talking about Junkbots, which is a project that enables people to build robots out of almost anything.

The free session will take place on Tuesday 14 March from 10:45am until 12pm and visitors can book onto the event by emailing community@wicksteedpark.org
