We’ve got something for everyone this National Science Week, from coding basics with Bee Bots to a game of Quick, Draw! You can even help train AI to play noughts and crosses.
These cute programmable floor-bots are a great way to introduce kids to the basics of coding. Use simple commands to make the bots move forward, backward, turn left, and turn right to navigate a maze.
This game is a fun way to see how AI works. Players try to draw a picture of an object, and the AI tries to guess what they are drawing. It’s a great way to test your creativity and see how well the AI can understand your drawings.
MENACE is a Machine Educable Noughts and Crosses Engine. Think of it as an unplugged computer made from matchboxes that plays noughts and crosses. Through playing more games, MENACE’s algorithm learns and improves, leading to fewer losses and more wins. Can you beat it?
Activities will be held on Saturday and Sunday, 12-13 and 19-20 August from 10am – 3.30pm. Located in our Rio Tinto Innovation Central gallery. All activities are included in the cost of your Scitech ticket.
