Robot racing returns! Control mini robots in races and watch bigger machines tackle obstacles on the Roger Bannister track. Find out why robots go places you wouldn’t want to go yourself. Scientists and engineers will be on hand in this popular Festival zone to answer questions and show that playing Jenga is a useful skill when working on fusion machines.

Your ticket allows you to arrive any time between 11am and 3pm. Activities are provided by UK Atomic Energy Authority and Oxfordshire Advanced Services.

Suitable for children aged 7+, teenagers and adults.
