Sharjah: The 13th Edition of the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF) is all set to introduce new, innovative Robot Zoo Exhibition once the event begins from the 11th of May 2022.
The 11-day event organized by Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) will run till the 22nd of May 2022.
A novel addition for the edutainment of children, the Robot Zoo will feature 8 animal robots and 15 hands-on activities which will be available for children to learn the master-planned machinery and magic in Nature that turns ordinary animals into complex machines.
The Robot Zoo exhibit presents huge robotic creatures that will illustrate the fascinating, real-life characteristics of even the smallest of species. Young visitors can see how powerful springs can launch a robot grasshopper into the air and how a robot bat locates prey in the dark using special equipment. The demonstrations are meant to help children love and understand their fellow beings on earth.
Shock absorbers and pumps are being used to demonstrate the mechanisms that make animals tick. Cutaways are used to present the insides of animals. By comparing the anatomy, environments and size of the actual creatures to their mechanized counterparts,
The Robot Zoo offers amazing new insights and hands-on fun to children who are curious to know how animals work.
The whole innovation is based on the book The Robot Zoo which was conceived, edited and designed by Marshall Editions of London, England. Through a host of easily recognizable machine parts and gadgets, the life mechanisms and anatomy of animals and insects are explained to young children.
