The Robot Orchestra project is led by Professor Danielle George at The University of Manchester. It aims to encourage young people’s interest in engineering through music. They learn computer coding and make a robot instrument. You can see some of the Robot Orchestra performances on Youtube.
You can make your own robot instrument with this Robot Orchestra making kit. There are four different robot instruments to choose from. Follow the written instructions or watch a demonstration film clip to see how to make them. Watch primary school children demonstrating how to make a Clacker, Crum Drum, Wobbler or Chime.
