Now in it’s 4th year, the UK Robotics Week is a key highlight in the calendar for UK Robotics. Held in the last week of June each year, the week showcases hundreds of robotics events, ranging from competitions, lectures, open days, symposia, hackathons, festivals, workshops and film premieres throughout the UK.
The International Showcase Event is the pinnacle event concluding the UK Robotics week each year. This year we will also participate in the Great Exhibition Road Festival: this is a hugely popular, flagship event heading into its 8th year. The festival will take place along Exhibition Road on 29/30 June 2019.
The Festival is a partnership between 20 of the National Museums and cultural institutions on and around Exhibition Road. It will mark the bicentenary of both Queen Victoria’s and Prince Albert’s birth and will reinvigorate Albert’s original vision for Albertopolis – the world’s first planned cultural quarter for research, learning and creativity, created following the Great Exhibition in 1851.
The Festival is targeted at Londoners, and we will work hard to engage communities from our local boroughs who wouldn’t normally engage with our Institutions to involve them in the Festival. We will also be welcoming teenagers and families who are inspired by the arts and sciences and could consider a career in our industries, as well as interested adults.
