Kelpie is a self-driving vehicle that can avoid moving objects that come into its path using cameras and sensors!
Brisbane City Council Libraries present story time for children and families at the Pop-up Library, with guest author Andrew King.
Brisbane Libraries' First 5 Forever will facilitate interactive stories about robots, sing songs and provide mark making activities for young children.
Come along to special book readings and signings by Andrew King, author of the Engibear series, at 12pm and 1pm. Books will be available to purchase from 11:30am.
Andrew King is a Brisbane based consulting engineer with qualifications in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. He is passionate about the integral role of engineering in environmental management and sustainability and is a Climate Reality Leader. Children are very interested in the things that engineers do yet there are very few engineers in children's literature. Consequently, Engibear and his friends Engilina and the Bearbot were created as a "friendly faces" of engineering – a way to introduce engineering to young children.
Drop-in, no bookings required
Sessions at: 10am, 11am, 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm.
Book signings by Andrew King (author Engibear series) at 12pm and 1pm.
