Inspiring the next generation to pursue a career in science and technology

Dr. Luke Wood from the Adaptive Systems Research Group visited Brushwood Junior School on the 15th of June 2016 to give the children an insight into the world of computer science and engineering. The children at the school got to see the Kaspar robot in action along with the 3d printers that produced many of the parts for the robot. The visit was part of a science and inventors theme week at the school where the children are designing their own inventions. Ms Holden: “We are very grateful to Luke for coming in and teaching the children and I know that they learnt a great deal from his visit and went away inspired to work on and improve their own inventions.”
