Middle School Students Study Biomimetics

Nice to see our middle school students having an experience like this...
" About ten seventh and eighth grade students from Buckingham, Browne, & Nichols School in Cambridge piled in a van and made their way up to Nahant on one of the rainiest, windiest days imaginable... Yep, that’s right — biomimetic robots... the neurological systems of animals like lobsters and bees, ... robotic systems whose mechanical circuitry mimics the animal’s neurological circuitry. This allows the robots to behave more like real animals capable of dealing with unforeseen circumstances."
