29th September 2017 -- RDC2MT Heriot-Watt University team participated in Explorathon 2017

On the 29th September a group of Heriot-Watt researchers from School of Engineering and Physical Sciences participated in Explorathon 2017, the event funded by the EU under the Horizon 2020 scheme, which involved academics, school pupils and the public across Edinburgh, to celebrate and showcase the best innovative and developmental research.

The group of researchers led by Dr Jin Xuan and Dr Huizhi Wang was delighted to share with the public on the research funded by the EU Horizon 2020 Project ‘RDC2MT’. By showcasing our energy and environment related research we hope that the take home message of this demonstration was that robotics, particularly 3D printing, can have a significant impact on our march towards the clean energy revolution. Whilst adults were expressing their interest in the practical aspects of this work, the little ones had their share of fun, by observing how the 3D printing works to make them a toy, which was fittingly a 3D printed robot.
