Recycled Robot to take pride of place at Royal Armouries In Leeds - Monday, 23 July 2012
Technicians are joining forces with children to create a giant 7ft robot from 1,500 pieces of card as part of a recycling project at Britain’s oldest museum – the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
In a week-long project, starting on August 13, children will be invited to colour in sections of card, as the giant robot takes shape – and also take part in a drawing competition.
CO2 Sense will display various recyclable materials in the museum’s Hall of Steel, close to a replica of one of the most famous movie robots of all – Iron Man.
The Royal Armouries is Britain’s oldest public museum and home to the national collection of arms and armour, including artillery. For more information about the summer holiday programme, visit:
