Linear Functions

Everyday Explorations

Electrical engineer Robert Wood is an expert in tiny robots called microrobots. Microrobots are about the size of a bee. He leads a team that invents and develops entirely new classes of microrobots. For years, the team has focused on creating flying microrobots called RoboBees that can be sent on missions that are too dangerous for humans.

A RoboBee has a 3-centimeter wingspan and a mass of 60 milligrams. Compare these measurements to the wingspan and mass of an actual honey bee.

On what types of assignments might RoboBees be sent?
