Soft Robotics Toolkit developer Dónal Holland will be attending the Family Fringe event at Inspirefest 2017 if you want to try your hand at creating some robots.

On stage at Inspirefest 2016, Soft Robotics Toolkit developer Dónal Holland revealed some incredible work undertaken by children during a visit to a Peruvian high school.

There, students created a number of moulds for soft robots in the space of a few hours, built with just some cardboard and glue.

For families looking to try out the Soft Robotics Toolkit for themselves, Holland will be at the Inspirefest Family Fringe event at Accenture’s The Dock on Saturday, 8 July to show people of all ages how to design and build their very own soft robots.
