Harvard & the Pioneer charter school of science outreach

Students and staff at the Harvard Microrobotics Lab applied the lessons they learned from building printable robots to creating an educational program for high school students. Four juniors and seniors from the Pioneer Charter School of Science attended a two-week program run by a team of Harvard researchers in which they learned principles of design, culminating in the construction of a robot from cardboard. The devices and robots built in this program were constructed using the same techniques developed and honed for the lab's work in building origami-inspired robots.

In addition, we have mentored six undergraduate students from four schools (Harvard, MIT, University of Colorado Boulder and Bunker Hill Community College) who pursued Printable Robots projects.
