Get ready to R-R-RUMBLE!! Students can use the power of hydraulic cylinders (no syringe!) to design, build and battle their very own Judo-Bot. Using TeacherGeek components and recycling bin innovation, they can engineer new methods to move bots up, down and side-to-side to best tip or push opponents out of the ring. Exploring concepts of force, balance, momentum, mechanical advantage and robotics with end effector designs, bots are a truly comprehensive STEM activity.
The following tools are recommended by TeacherGeek and required to assemble the Judo Bot:
NOTE: See Build Guide for more details on required tools.
