Soft Robotics

About this Elective

Campus: Wellesley College | Rising Grades: 10,11,12 | Program: EXPLO Pre-College

Imagine a robot that looks, moves, and even feels truly alive. The field of soft robotics aims to create robots that can realistically imitate biological structures. Consider what might be necessary to program a robotic plant to bend in the wind and respond to light, or design and build a human hand that can manipulate objects in real life. Immerse yourself in the design process and work as a team to push the boundaries of what you think robotics can be.
