Animal Robots: Designing robots to mimic animal movements
In this club session, students are going to use what they can observe in nature as inspiration for a robot they design, build, and program.
Biomimicry is the concept of using nature as inspiration for building objects, buildings, and even robots! In this camp, students are going to use what they can observe in nature as inspiration for a robot they design, build, and program. First, students dive into the natural world to hone their skills by becoming a naturalist. They then translate their observations through a robot they design and program. Students explore how biology, art, and robots can all be linked. This is the perfect camp for students who may be new to robotics but want to make a jump into how engineering encompasses multiple disciplines. Students also dive into the fundamentals of AI by participating in an AI activity.
- Explore and observe the natural world by analyzing biological systems
- Practice using robotic tools and programming multiple motors to work together
- Build and design a robot that mimics an observed movement
- Expand basic programming and computational thinking skills to perform multiple operations at one time
