Bionic Arm Design Challenge

A bionic arm combines robotics, biotechnology, and electronics to recreate the functions of the human arm. Advances in bionics can improve the lives of millions of people with lost limbs.

In this challenge you will virtually design and test a robotic arm, and learn how engineers create working artificial arms.
  • Discover the different components used to make a bionic arm.
  • Test your arm against several criteria commonly used in the construction of real robotic arms.
  • Work with a budget to choose the components you think will create the best arm, and see how it performs.
