Robotics in the real world
Visit The Cube these schools holidays to learn about Robotics in the real world.
Explore the research QUT is undertaking in Robotics with ARM Hub (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) and keep children entertained with The Cube’s interactive projects Robot Factory and Code-A-Bot. Children can also test their driving skills with the Sphero obstacle course.
We encourage you to visit our COVIDSafe guidelines before your visit.
Places are limited and bookings (for parents/carers and children) are essential. Parental supervision is required at all times.
Our recycling robots are slow and inefficient. We need your help to recode our robots and turn DERP (Department of Environmental Resource Processing) into a recycling plant for the future!
Code-A-Bot is an interactive digital game putting you in charge of programming robot workers to collect and sort rubbish, improving the overall efficiency of a waste recycling plant. Using The Cube's digital touch screens, robots can be coded to move, sense, and collect or distribute rubbish around the facility and into the correct bins.
Build your own unique robot using spare parts from the factory: there are millions of combinations to explore! Then, launch your robot into space and watch as it floats into zero gravity – can you spot yours?
