Advanced Manufacturing & Prototyping Integrated to Unlock Potential (AMP-IT-UP) program Tour Crab Lab

The Georgia Tech campus proves it stays busy as Advanced Manufacturing & Prototyping Integrated to Unlock Potential (AMP-IT-UP) program participants visited campus as finals week approached.

AMP-IT-UP works close with Carver Middle School in Griffin, Georgia among others to provide an opportunity to engage in design and implementation steps within product development. On April 25, close to 40 8th grade students toured the Complex Rheology And Biomechanics (CRAB) Lab in the School of Physics.

The work of interdisciplinary collaboration, the CRAB Lab builds robotic simulations that mimic organism movement in various systems. Studying the mechanics of snakes, turtle, and even cockroaches can be difficult, so the use of robot replicas are just one way to overcome obstacles.
