On the Ground Floor, visitors can meet Robothespian, W5’s life sized, humanoid, interactive robot who can move, speak, educate, interact and entertain!
Robothespian is primarily a robot actor and performer. He is fully interactive, user friendly, and capable of communicating and entertaining in a way that few people will have experienced before. This static, humanoid robot can be controlled by the visitor, via a touchscreen panel, and can sing, greet, inform, act and even do impressions. Visitors can choose from a wide range of pre-programmed performance sequences or can even control Robothespian’s movement and voice to create performance pieces of their own!
Complete your visit to W5 with a trip to the gift shop on the ground floor. It is a wonderful place to pick up some unusual and educational presents. We stock a wide range of science kits, toys, books and pocket money items!
Exploration is key at Spacebase - the multi-sensory activity zone for 3-11 year olds. Children are encouraged to find out about the universe with state of the art wrist band technology that turns them into space explorers, encouraging them to discover fun facts about our solar system within the activity zone to complete their mission!
Adults can relax in a dedicated seating area and treat themselves to a hot beverage from our Spacebase coffee dock while watching their children play and have fun.
