Research Projects for High School Students

Many of our other programs are based on projects that have contributions from our secondary students. If one of our Dream Big or Age of STEAM programs that interests you, just contact us (below). Here are some examples:

  • The Age of STEAM’s Pneumatics project. Based on McKibben Muscles, contractile or extensional devices operated by pressurized air filling a pneumatic bladder. They are an approximation of human muscles, and applicable in all kinds of robotics projects, include humanoid robots and prosthetic limbs.
  • DIY Robotics for our Summer High School Robotics Institute. Learn to design, build and code a small-board-computer (SBC)-controlled, high-quality small robotic system, following these concepts. Starting Fall 2019, selected high school students and ExplorTech Ambassadors can help develop concepts for a football-playing robotics system to be used in a summer competition at a local college.

ExplorTech is a nonprofit service company in the STEM/STEAM education space, serving North Texas students, teachers, and families. We also explore research and development projects to support our programs. These projects are available to our high school Ambassadors and other motivated high school students who have the time to participate in an ongoing project. All of our services are free of charge.
