Inspire a class of young engineers with this classroom pack of 10 robot crawlers. Students will build motor-powered robots that walk (and even race) to explore linkages, friction, and mechanical energy. They’ll also experiment with variables, test the results, and redesign the robot to make it as fast or strong as possible. The project is broken up into multiple suggested class periods and serves 20-40 students.
Designed for 3rd to 5th grade classrooms, each pack includes all the materials, instructions, and lesson plans to explore STEM topics through project-based learning, while aligning with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). They make a perfect gift for teachers, educators, classrooms, maker spaces, after school programs, and camps.
