In the Making: Robotics and Toolmaking
When thinking of the work done here at NBSS—using our hands to build and repair objects—robotics rarely comes to mind. Yet, increasingly our tools and many objects we rely on are manufactured using robotics. In this program, using tools as our focus, we will explore and discuss the ways in which human hands and material knowledge tie into robotics in manufacturing.
