Builds ten entertaining vibrating robots to explore and develop. All materials, components and full instructions included. Simple off-centre foam weight rotates to generate motion. Devise ways to modify, test and compare your robots! A memorable lesson guaranteed!
What is the project about?
This projects builds 10 entertaining robots to develop and explore. You can have great fun to modify, test and race! In this project pupils can investigate key topics in the science, design & technology, engineering, art and maths curriculum’s. Pupils will develop dexterity and leadership skills whilst assembling this project. The successful assembly will see students explore energy, forces and simple mechanic motions.
This is a flat pack project. You will receive the content for ten entertaining vibrating robots which will produce vibrating action that causes the robot to move around. You can devise ways to modify, test and compare your robots. All materials, components and assembly instructions are included. You will receive prewired and insulated motors along with battery safety instructions for teachers and pupils.
