Robotics kit for Students to Automate Biology Experiments

Robotics kit for Students to Automate Biology Experiments

Mar 22, 2017 @ 19:55 | By Andrew Myers Modern biology labs often use robotic assemblies to drop precise amounts of fluids into experimental containers. Now students and teachers can create inexpensive automated systems to do this in clubs or classrooms. Elementary and secondary school students who later want to become scientists and engineers often get […]

PUFFER: NASA’s New Foldable Child Rover

PUFFER: NASA’s New Foldable Child Rover

Mar 21, 2017 @ 21:10 |  PUFFER is a “pop-up” robot that folds into a small, smartphone-sized weight and crawls into narrow places where rovers can’t fit. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California has developed Pop-Up Flat Folding Explorer Robot (PUFFER), inspired by origami. The PUFFER is a project, sponsored by Game Changing Development (GCD) program, […]
