Roboticist’s Apprentice

Saturday, May 30, 2015

What can robots teach us about fish? Plenty, according to NYU Polytech professor Maurizio Porfiri, who engineers robotic animals and showed apprentices how it’s done. Using a design program and a 3-D printer, kids got to create their own robotic fish. Professor Porfiri also led a tour through his lab to explain how these engineering marvels are used in science experiments with real fish.

Ages: 6th-8th grade.
