Particularly designed for participants of JellyBot Workshops 1 & 2, in this final part of the JellyBot series you will be able to customize and pilot a professionally-engineered Jellyfish-inspired robot in our water tanks. You will design the top of the Jellyfish to create a shape that best allows the JellyBot to swim around the tank in a series of challenges, and work together to develop a system of controls to steer the JellyBot around. Chances are you’ll get a little wet…again!
