Designing Your Own Robot

Illustration Elements

Context

Students were encouraged to choose a project topic based on their own interests. This student chose robots. He spent the first part of the project doing research. How are robots used? When was the first robot created? How can I build my own robot? He created a report and a display about what he learned.

While researching, he found the Bristol Bot kits. He ordered one and followed the instructions to make a robot. After all this preparation, he realized that he could design and create his own robot. He used the remote from his Lego car to create a robot that lifted a pop can up and down. He had to keep making changes (e.g., adding pieces, altering the design) until the robot eventually worked.
