Y8 Robotic Arms project

Students in technology were set the challenge of researching and looking at the build and manufacture of robotic arms, considering their function and how they can benefit and even transform the lives of humans.
Below is the work of three year 8 students, who have put their skills, knowledge and understanding to good use to prototype two working models – one from Lego, an alternative version from cardboard and string, and a cardboard exoskeleton design.
