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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Director of
Educational Programs for the Harvard School of Engineering and
Applied Sciences. We look forward to meeting you!
