Introducing the research work to young students and arousing their interest in science, especially in materials science, nanotechnology and robotics, is one of the STORM-BOTS goals.
Last week one of our ESRs, Zixuan Deng, participated in a lab tour at Tampere University and gave 22 high school students a demonstration on light-fueled liquid crystal soft robotics. He also explained how experimental work and research are carried out on a daily basis.
Students were fully engaged in the activity and gave very positive feedback. Congratulations Zixuan!
