In this session we will consider the robot as a lens to examine strategies for how we can make emerging and disruptive technologies accessible to our diverse visitors and users.
We will begin by working in groups to build basic programmable "robot" components like hands, joints, speech, and heartbeats, using paper, craft material, simple electronics, and BBC microbits. This experience will inform the discussion of the strategies we can use to drive citizen engagement, and innovation in our own practice as libraries.
Finally, workshop participants will be invited to identify a strategy that they could begin to implement, and map their strategy to one of the robot components created earlier in the session. From this will begin to emerge a picture of the different trajectories we can take as libraries to embody robots and what they represent, and make these accessible to our communities.
