Wagga’s civic precinct will become a futuristic world filled with high-tech robots next weekend when the Riverina Science Hub hosts its very own Robo Day.
Chrissy Bolton of Wagga City Library said the team had chosen “technology and robotics” as this year’s science week theme.
“We’ve made an environment where people can access robots in a fun way,” Ms Bolton said.
“We’re going to have a robot catwalk, a robot petting zoo, some virtual reality, and augmented reality sandpit, and a 3D print hub at the Museum of the Riverina.”
Ms Bolton said it was all about giving children opportunities to learn.
“Living in a country area, not many of our young people get the opportunity to get up close and personal with technology in that way.”
Robo Day is August 18.
