Building robots has never been more fun! First students draw a challenge card, then they use creativity and problem-solving skills to construct a wooden robot that fulfills the card's directive. Intentionally broad prompts like building a robot that scrambles eggs, moves without wheels, or launches an object allow limitless potential solutions and encourage students to learn by taking charge of their own builds.

After fulfilling the challenge cards, attach the included motors, wires, and battery packs to everyday objects or LEGO bricks for creative robotic designs! A 22-page booklet offers introductory engineering techniques before requiring students to rely on trial and error to achieve successful results.
