Christchurch kids! Give Tūranga’s Bookbots Earth names & win prizes! (2 to 31 July)

Kids can win awesome prizes by filling out this special online survey. All you have to do is help name Tūranga’s intergalactic heroes, the Bookbots.

During the month of July, local primary and intermediate students can vote on their favourite names for the digital characters and go in the draw to win prizes, including a real-life interactive robot for their school, with training provided by PBTech, and a class workshop with Imagination Station. Bluetooth speakers from Spark and giant Bookbot wall decals are also up for grabs.

Voting is open to local primary and intermediate students until 31 July 2018 (limited to one entry per student).


A special survey run by Christchurch City Council revealed the most popular names for Tūranga’s five Bookbots who hail from the planet Biblio.

Captain Connect, Mihi and Manu, Qbot, Rubix and the Nanobuds will each take up residence in the library when it opens on 12 October. Read Newsline: Turanga’s Bookbots get Earth names
