In this project, we will learn how to make a worm robot using basic techniques. This project is great for a maker space or mechanical engineering challenge at school, library or home.
Once you learn the basics, you can experiment with different body styles and designs to make your robot faster. You can also set up a competition between friends to see who can build the fastest worm robot. Make STEM education fun!
The good thing about this project is that you can get most of your “robot” parts from the trash. You can use recycle bottles, ice cream sticks and many trash items to create the body of your worm robot. Get creative!
For this project, you will also need the following materials:
- Bottle caps
- DC gear motor
- Battery connecter
- Tongue depressors/ice cream sticks
- Kabab sticks
- Round sticks
- Screw with bolt
