Description:  Biological robots, or biobots, use living cells to sense, process, and respond to their environments. The BioBots workshop is a workshop that meets twice a week during IAP in which students make rings of muscle tissue that are able to generate a force around a soft skeleton. This is a great way to learn more about tissue culture.
