Robots are made to go and do what humans either can not, or do not want to do. They are used in hundreds of ways from exploring Mars, to working tirelessly on a manufacturing line, to providing companionship.
Not to mention they make great movie characters!
There is a lot of interesting science and engineering involved in designing and building robots. Here is a sampling of the topics you can explore with
our robotics science and engineering Project Ideas:
Design of a robot hand and how the finger positions affect what the robot can do
How people react to robots
Building a robot that can make art
Creating a robot that can explore underwater
Browse through our robotics science and engineering Project Ideas and see what you can create.
