Encourage and Challenge Your Student Engineers


Robot Critters

From plastic cups to upcycled vibrating motors from the junk drawer, inspire your kids with hands-on robotics engineering projects that scale from easy to more challenging. Whether your kids prefer robots skittering about with circuitry exposed or scampering in full costume, we have fun suggestions for robot building activities to get them started and to continue adding to their engineering skills. Check our projects for simple art bots, bristlebots, sophisticated bots you can lead with a flashlight, and more.

Student Accelerometer Project
Jumping for Science
For his 8th grade science project, Jonathan Stewart gave the "The Chills and Thrills of Roller Coaster Hills" project a new twist. The local amusement park was closed for the year, so after building his accelerometer (shown in the photo), Jonathan put it to the test on a trampoline for a great physics project exploration of g-force!
