Sea Jelly

Build your own free-swimming biomimetic platform with help from the Navy’s first soft robotics STEM initiative. The SeaJelly project includes open-source CAD and PCB designs, Arduino code, build instructions, and reference materials. It is a great way to learn new concepts, gain hands-on experience, and encourage creativity. After your first build, try modifying parts of the design or exploring different SeaJelly applications – such as citizen science! JenniFish, a master’s thesis research prototype, was used as the foundation for SeaJelly. Have fun naming your own SeaJelly variant!
