What's Happening at the Montshire

Experiment with aquatic robots!

Jellybot: Soft, Aquatic, Bio-inspired Engineering

In this three session program, Students will explore density, buoyancy, thrust, and other physics concepts through a variety of engineering design challenges using jellyfish and other aquatic organisms for inspiration. Throughout this process, they will collect and interpret data, test and redesign their device, and then take on a series of challenges. At the end of the program, students will pilot real-life robotic jellyfish created by local engineering firm, Creare LLC. **Enrollment for this program includes three sessions on Tuesdays, Oct. 11, 18, and 25
