Hydraulic Arm Research

6th grade science students at the Beebe School can use the following links to research their robotic arm project: Students may also wish to peform web searches using or for keywords like:
  • mechanical arm
  • hydraulic arm
  • robot arm OR manufacturing
Be sure to take notes about what you learn in your design journal. You can draw quick sketches to help you remember new and strange devices. UPDATE: The following MIT page, Designing Mechanisms, Might be useful for cherry-picking specific ideas for use in your project. If you use an idea from that book, be certain to note that in your design journal.
