Body builders

Body builders workshop
Learn about the possibilities of prosthetic limbs for injured soldiers and get hands-on with our robotic arms.

Could you complete an everyday task with a robotic arm?

Learners work together in small teams to identify features of the basic structure of their own arm, and then complete a simple task using a robotic arm to understand the complex relationship between the body and the brain.

This session also develops learners understanding of those with different needs, and begin to consider some of the challenges and opportunities which are present in the field of prosthetics and engineering.
