AS THE rise of the robots threatens to snatch jobs from our school leavers, children embodied one thing machine cannot yet mimic: sheer enthusiasm.

Youngsters happily sacrificed a slice of their Easter holiday to visit Science Oxford on Saturday, to learn about robots and create their own game of Operation.

The session saw children aged nine-12 play with a robotic arm and make a foil circuit inside a cardboard surgery 'patient', much like the popular board game.

Summertown resident Tom Scholes said the session, which was part of Science Oxford's Maker Club, was ‘absolutely fantastic'.

The Cutteslowe Primary School governor took along his nine-year-old son Jem Leighton-Scholes, who is in Year 4 at Cutteslowe.

Mr Scholes said: “The tactile nature of what they are doing makes it so much more engaging than just learning out of a book.

“I'd like to see these sessions run in schools - it doesn’t take much, just some some cardboard and foil.

“It’s really great to be able to see that enthusiasm - especially as this is a city full of science; the whole of Oxfordshire is full of science.”


He said engagement in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects is particularly important given that schools are increasingly having to prepare children for jobs that do not yet exist.
