I MET ONE OF MY FAVOURITE SPORT STARS Alex won the Press Pack competetition to interview golfing legend Tiger Woods. „I was very execited to be meeting Tiger Woods, he's one of my favourite sport stars. I like the way he can hit the ball so far. I think he's a good sportman too. I was a bit nervous first meeting him as there were also of other reporters and photographers who would be listening to my interview. I asked Tiger about who his idol was. He said Nelson Mandala, but also his mum and dad as they helped him a lot along the way to where he is now. Tiger also told me that when he was a schoolboy he wasn't allowed to practise golf until he had finished his homework. His favourite golf course is St Andrews in Scotland because it has a really nice setting and the course is very challenging. Tiger's advice for any young golf player is to practice, that way you'll get better. Tiger was really friendly to talk to and I soon forgot about all the other people that were around me. It was hard to believe I was interviewing such a famous person – my friends were all really jealous when I told them I'd be doing this. I'd like to thank Newsround for my once-in-a-lifetime experience; this is something I will always remember. Alex, 13 Warwickshire

A new project celebrating the history of robots starts on 15 May. The Cambridge Robot Project, which has been organised by members of the University of Cambridge, will combine film, art and theatre to explore both the technology of robots and what they can tell us about what it means to be human. The robot has become a symbol of modern culture and celebrates its 88th birthday this year. The idea of the ’man machine’ was invented in 1921 in the play ’Rossum’s Universal Robots’ by Karel Capek, which featured biological androids created without emotions to serve humans. The familiar image of the metallic android sprang from other artists and film-makers int he 1920s and 1930s. The Cambridge Robot Project will be re-screening ’Metropolis’ and more recent classic films about machines, including ’2001: A Space Odyssey’, ’The Matrix’ and ’The Terminator’. One of the highlights of the project’s photographic exhibition will be the chance to see images of Eva, the lifelike bodiless robot head created by a University of Texas student. Cambridge Robot Project organiser Kathleen Richardson, an anthropologist at the University of Cambridge, says her aim was to explore what humanity means. The Cambridge Robot Project film festival and art exhibition are on from 15 to 18 May. Performances of ’Rossum’s Universal Robots’ run from 23 to 26 May. All events will take place at Michaelhouse on Trinity Street, Cambridge. Tickets cam be purchased for individual events, but a special twho-week festival ticket (Ł20, Ł15 concessions) is also available until 15 May.
