Description

STEM Challenge: Create a Wobblebot and a Wigglebot (Bright Minds Years 3-5)

During this hands-on technology task, students will make two ‘robots’ – a Wobblebot and a Wigglebot. One robot will wiggle, vibrate and spin around – making interesting designs on paper with its marker pen legs! The other will wobble, dance and jump around when switched on.

To make these projects students will learn about circuits as they use batteries, motors, switches and recycled materials to create a functioning robot.

Location: Queensland Academy for Science, Mathematics and Technology (78 Bywong Street, Toowong)

Date: Tuesday 19 June

Time: 4.00 pm – 5.30 pm

Cost: $45.00

Capacity: 24

Students are required to wear comfortable clothes, enclosed shoes, with hair tied back, and bring a drink. In addition, students are asked to bring a ‘Slurpee’ cup lid (dome shaped) and an old CD. All other materials will be supplied.

This workshop seeks to:

  • explicitly explore the concept of function
  • strengthen attitudes associated with confidence
  • provide students with the opportunity to develop self-management skills including those associated time management skills.
