Badges Earned: Machines and Robotics Level 1

Description: You’re definitely going to like your options here. Below, you’ll get a chance to create three different analog robots. One is called Inchwork, one is called Buck, the other is Scoop. Have fun. They take time, but will get you to the next step.

Before you create anything, fill out a Challenge Proposal. Everything solves a problem- so what will these solve?

You may choose one of the three projects below. 




Have fun, and ask lots of questions. We have all of the items you’ll need.

NOTE:  Is there a way you can improve the design? If so, document that in your process.

Some tips along the way: Take pictures of your project, and get an instructor to visually check out things along the way. We suggest creating a “demo video” of all of your projects. Why? They can be used as evidence of completion. One demo video can be enough evidence to receive numerous badges. Only needs to be about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Earn Your Badges:  When you’re done, earn your badge!
