The Tibidabo Amusement Park fills up with robots

The days are organised jointly with the company Ro-Botica, and with the participation of TBKids and LEGO® Education

On Saturday 24 and Sunday 25, Tibidabo Amusement Park will celebrate Robotics Weekend with a range of innovative activities centred on robots, which will let visitors see and learn about this technology in a fun and educational way. The event is being organised jointly with the company Ro-Botica, a sector leader, and TBKids will be participating. Further, LEGO® Education representative Troels Dyhrman will attend, who will present the new CREATIBI space, where workshops will be done using LEGO materials.

Several building workshops have been prepared with different robotic technologies, Fischertechnik and Littlebits (used to build segways) and 3D computer modelling platforms, featuring Star Wars games.

There will also be activities so that visitors get the chance to interact with robots, such as the Humanoid Edbot, Robot Albert, with whom visitors can play sports and develop their creativity, the LEGO robots and the Bee-Bot and Blue-Bot, which will let participants learn programming while enjoying the park. All participants will also be entered into a drawing to win a ‘Tibidabot’, a robot like the one that will be used in some of the activities.

Educational robotics

Conferences will also be given on the educational advantages of robotics, increasingly present in our daily lives. Educational robotics let us work across the fundamental subjects for technologically advanced societies, including the sciences, technology, engineering, arts and maths, and let skills be learned such as responsibility, team work and interest in research.

The Robotics Weekend is linked to the City Educational Project being promoted by the city council, expressing Barcelona’s educational vision and vocation as a basic tool for social development and cohesion. Further, it is aligned with the STEMCat Plan that the Catalan Autonomous Government started up in February to encourage youth to study scientific degrees.
