Announcing 'Resources for Educators' Tab

The Soft Robotics Toolkit team is pleased to announce the launch of the Resources for Educators tab!

Here at the Soft Robotics Toolkit, we strive to continue our efforts to make content available to a broader audience, from our seasoned users all the way to those just starting to experiment with soft robots. In keeping with that goal we have launched a tab on our site for educators to download and share the instructional materials that are often used in Toolkit outreach events and workshops.  

Based on the research conducted in the Biodesign Lab and through content submitted to us, these guides detail the design and fabrication of different components on the site yet they call for fabrication materials that are inexpensive, easy to use and widely available. We hope that these open-source guides will help educator’s integrate soft robots into their classrooms, allow more students to experiment with the field, and expand the community of soft robotics.
