Electric Motors by Dr. Peter Neuhaus, IHMC

December 16, 2017

The topic of December Science Saturday was “Electric Motors”, led by Dr. Peter Neuhaus, Senior Research Scientist at IHMC. Students worked with with volunteers from local high schools to make simple electric motors. They learned about principles involved in the operation of their motors, and about the application and use of such motors in IHMC’s robotics research. The generosity of the season sponsors makes it possible for all students to participate in Science Saturdays free of charge. The participation of the high school student volunteers helps to make Science Saturdays more fun.
