Tensegrity is a materially and mechanically efficient system that can combine actuators with structural elements. In the studio, tensegrity systems for shape-changing and locomotion applications will be investigated using numerical simulation and physical rapid prototyping.
The studio is sponsored by the NASA Florida Space Grant Consortium (FSGC) and will provide a $2,000 scholarship to six selected students*. Studio work will be presented at the 2018 ASCE Earth and Space Conference.
Application Deadline: March 15, 2017
*Students must be US citizens from FSGC affiliated universities and colleges.
