Robotic Arm - Become a space engineer for a day

In this set of two activities pupils will learn about the different functions of bones and muscles, such as the humerus, ulna and metacarpals and understand how the human arm works. They are given the opportunity to use their own ideas to build and test a model robotic arm, with a full understanding of why robotic arms are useful tools, especially in space. These two activities can be done individually or as a set.
