With over 70 activities and counting, there is something for everyone at the Daresbury Laboratory Open Day - and whether you are 5 or 105 there will be something for all ages with our Hartree Centre and Scientific Computing teams. From building and programming Lego Mindstorm robots, to understanding the basics of computer electronics and softw​are with our mini Arduinos, you will go away knowing more about programming than when you arrived.

Younger ones will love the BeeBots, our fun bumble bee robots that they’ll be able to programme to follow a map. And for those who remember the days before computers (what did we do without them?), the History of Computing display will be a fascinating journey through the last 50 years of computers, before being brought right up to the cutting edge of supercomputing with a very rare tour of our ‘Machine Room’, home to one of the most powerful supercomputers in the UK dedicated to working with industry.
