Scienceworks has a fabulous new addition to our staff – a Sanbot Australia robot.

Now we need your help finding the perfect name! We’re asking for all robot fans to help name the newest member of our AI family. This is a chance for everyone to be a part of history and vote to name our newest futuristic friend at Scienceworks.

Stuck for ideas? Visit Think Ahead these school holidays to learn more about robotics and even meet some of our other robots on display including C-3PO. You might even get the chance to meet our new robot in person if you're lucky!

You'll go into the draw to win Museum Memberships and one of 50 family passes to Scienceworks. The winning submission will also score an invite to the Scienceworks Summer Party for the big naming announcement!
