Hear about 'swimming' robot gliders in Lunchtime Labs!

Have you ever seen a robot swim? Researchers from UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences use a ‘swimming’ robot called a Seaglider to gather data from the farthest reaches of our seas and oceans – from the polar ice caps to the Bay of Bengal. Learn more in this Lunchtime Lab!
