SMR IGERT Welcomes Cohort3


Seven graduate students have joined the Soft Material Robotics IGERT program as members of Cohort3. This past week, Sarah Bradner (Biomedical Engineering), Cassandra Donatelli (Biology), Piers Echols-Jones (Mechanical Engineering), Nikolas Kastor (Mechanical Engineering), Ritwika Mukherjee (Biology), Anthony Scibelli (Biology), and Christopher Wagenbach (Mechanical Engineering attended our 5-day SMR Boot Camp. Faculty presented lectures on biomimetic robots, circuits and sensors, mechanics of locomotion, structural properties of soft materials, control theory, CAD, and electrophysiology. Students also worked in small teams on projects that incorporated some of the concepts presented in the classroom sessions.
