The Robots are Coming!

On Wednesday of this week, Year 9 braved the snowy conditions to visit the University of Manchester to hear a lecture presented by Professor Danielle George a BBC Science presenter and Vice Dean at Manchester University.

 

Her talk was entitled “The Robots are Coming” and she explained how robots can now carry out everyday tasks with ease. She demonstrated how a robot could solve a Rubik’s Cube (in a fraction of the time of a human) and she set up a full robotic orchestra with the help of two of our students who volunteered and half a dozen others from the audience!

 

We would like to thanks the Rotary Club for organising and hosting the lecture and our own Rotary Club of Lymm for their sponsoring of the tickets and transport for the event. The pupils were a credit to our school, very much appreciated the opportunity given to them and had a very enjoyable afternoon!
