Robots and other forms of cutting-edge technology invaded the Wagga library spaces, exposing children and families to all things technology.
RoboDay was held on August 18 and transformed the council meeting room into a Petting Zoo where locals programmed and played with Spheros and EZ robots and experienced the magic of virtual and augmented reality.
Mother of two children Megan Miller, said this was the first time her family joined the RoboDay.
“I’m just really excited to get the girls really exposed to the sciences and the idea that they can build things and look at things in different ways and play with human anatomy, which is pretty cool,” she said.
CSU Science Club volunteer Emily Cross, said this was a “great” opportunity for children.
“I think teaching kids about science from an early age is really important and trying to encourage more people to get into science when they’re older is really exciting,” Ms Cross said.
The library held a range of activities, including a 3D printer where people had the opportunity to print small items as well as coding workshops for those with a level of experience.
The library’s team leader Chrissie Bolton said the robots and technology were sourced locally and from interstate.
“The specialised robots came to us from a company in Geelong called The Brainary and we’ve also hired a young entrepreneur from Wagga, Michael Nixon who has a 3D printer,” she said.
