Jumping Cockroaches, Oh My!
This lesson was full of all kinds of challenges. Jumping machines of all kinds at Saturday science.
Inspired by the leaproach, we set out on a mission of bio-inspired design. How to make a machine that jumps with legs?
So we knew the leaproach has spring-loaded knees. We looked at a potential model based simply on cardstock, as shown onscreen. Then things got more creative, with other types of legs introduced. Competition!
