Science Saturday - National Museums Scotland

Dr. Katrin Lohan, Prof. Lynne Baillie and their team from the Department of Maths & Computer Science at Heriot-Watt University took part in the National Museums Scotland 'Science Saturday' on 19 January 2019. The aim of the exhibit was to get young visitors engaged with robots by getting them to drive Anki's 'Cozmo' robots around a racecourse. Designed as the ultimate robot for children Cozmo introduces them to basic coding.

ORCA Hub Open Day

In October 2018 we hosted our first ORCA Hub Open Day at Heriot-Watt University. The day was an opportunity for those interested in the Hub to come along and find out more about our activities during the first year of the project and our plans for the future. The event also featured a robotics showcase with exhibits from our partner institutions and research groups. Find out more about our Open Day...
