Robots, it turns out, are always the answer. Even when the question is: how can we tackle the threat of antibiotic resistance?

Head to the Thinktank Birmingham’s award-winning science museum, to play MICROBOTS, a brand new gaming exhibit taking up long-term residence in the museum’s Futures Gallery.

MICROBOTS brings together contemporary research in mathematics robotics, fluid dynamics, targeted drug therapy and anti-microbial resistance.

MICROBOTS has been designed and created by Dr Thomas Montenegro-Johnson, Dr Sara Jabbari, Dr Meurig Gallagher & Dr Gemma Cupples, researchers in the University of Birmingham’s School of Mathematics as part of a new partnership between University of Birmingham and Birmingham Museums Trust.
