Bio-robotics and Animal Movement
Our bio-inspired robotics project explores the links between robots, computer programming and animal movement, specifically that of snakes and caterpillars.

Over millions of years creatures large and small have adapted to their environments and evolved unique specialisations. Today’s scientists and engineers are drawing inspiration from the animal kingdom in creating the next generation of robots to help us to solve some of the biggest challenges facing humankind.

The project runs over a term to include:                                                  
1. A twilight CPD session for teachers
2. An Animal Locomotion schools’ workshop in the Grant Museum of Zoology
3. A tour of our world-class university led by our students
4. Loan of a bioinspired robotics kit to your school with technical support from our students

Autumn term dates to be confirmed shortly. Please email to register your interest.
