Though they don't perform on TV, these simple wind-up machines include levers and rotating cams, and show the change from elastic potential into kinetic energy.

Description

Though they don't perform on TV, these simple wind-up machines include levers and rotating cams, and show the change from elastic potential into kinetic energy. The Dancing Robot has a visible cam in its belly that moves the hips and arms while bobbing the head. The Slider uses a remarkable timing gear to switch between two different dance moves, including a split. Unique motors cannot be overwound. Approx 10 cm tall (~4") Colors and styles may vary.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

K-PS2-1

Students can plan and conduct an investigation using the Dancing Robots to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

3-PS2-2

Students can make observations and/or measurements of the Dancing Robots motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

MS-PS2-2

Students can plan and conduct an investigation using the Dancing Robots to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.

MS-PS3-5

Using the Dancing Robots, students can develop an investigation and model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance change, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.

HS-PS2-2

Students can plan and conduct an investigation using the Dancing Robots to use mathematical representation to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.

HS-PS3-3

Students can use the Dancing Robots to test a design, build, and redefine a devise that works with given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

K-PS2-1
3-PS2-2
MS-PS2-2
HS-PS2-2

Students can plan and conduct an investigation using the Dancing Robots to demonstrate forces and energy release. They include simple machines and rotating cams to show off their kinetic energy.
