Teaching and Outreach

Our lab takes part in many student activities: Radhika teaches courses at both the undergrad and grad levels, and is the faculty advisor for WiCS (Women in CS) and a regular attender of the Grace Hopper Conference. But most of all, our lab enjoys doing STEM/Science Outreach for K-12 groups and public events throughout Cambridge. See below on how to contact us.

Undergrad Clubs:
WICs: Harvard Women in Computer Science
Robocup: Robot Soccer Competition
CS189: Autonomous Multi-Robot Systems
CS289: Bio-inspired Multi-Agent Systems

Outreach: Bio-inspired Robotics

Quote from a middle schooler: "Thank you for showing us the cricket robot. I am going to build my own and maybe I could show you!"

Our lab uses inspiration from nature to design computing and robotic systems. We enjoy presenting our work to K-12 students and getting them excited about science and engineering. We have several non-technical presentations and hands-on robot demonstrations for elementary and middle school students that can travel to events, and we take part in the Cambridge Science Festival every year. We are especially interested in reaching underrepresented groups in engineering.

If you are interested in having us bring our robot demos to your event, or having your students visit our lab and other labs at Harvard, please contact Kathryn Hollar (hollar@seas.harvard.edu), the Director of Educational Programs for the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. We look forward to meeting you!
