Lab Robots: automation to make science easier

Hear from people in Cambridge who have used robots and automation to make their lives in the lab easier. Talks and demos include:

• Matt Wayland (Department of Zoology) on a fly food dispensing robot hacked from a CNC router

• Cambridge iGEM team on low-cost automated scanning stages for microscopes.

We’ll also be collecting ideas for robot projects at Science Makers, so bring along your thoughts on lab tasks that are crying out for automation.

If you have a robot you’d like to talk about and/or demo, contact Jenny on! Transport of the robot or automation equipment to makespace can be arranged.

plus Special Guest Speaker Attila Szantner on Massively Multiplayer Online Science


Hack the Lab is a monthly meetup and co-working session for open technologies in science, particularly hardware.

  • 12:00 Talks and demos
  • 13:30 Lunch (pizza available for £4 contribution)
  • 14:30 Co-working on projects
