We will build a robot arm from simple materials

The arm must pick up a paper cup from a distance of 45cm

Lift the cup to a height of at least 15cm

Bring the cup back to rest and release it

Robot Arm

Divide into teams of two (2)

Review the requirements

Discuss a solution and create a sketch of your design

Build a model of your design with given materials

Test your model

Outline and Procedures

Discuss and agree upon a redesign

If needed after testing, or

to enhance the previous design

Rebuild your robot arm

Retest your model

Answer reflection questions as a team

Redesign after testing

Robot Arm

What was one thing you liked about your design? What is its main weakness?

What is one thing you would change about your design based on your experience

Are there algebraic and physical principles that can be applied to this activity?

How would you modify the instructions to create a better experience for the participants?
