Description

Robotic science is becoming a greater part of our everyday lives. This amazing DIY construction kit will allow young explorers to understand how robotic servos and relays operate as they build a functional robotic arm of their own. Once complete, the robotic arm can be used for assisting action figures, creating robot art, or whatever a young imagination can devise. It uses five axes of motion and includes a gripper with a searchlight for use at night. Construction time is about two hours. Uses four D batteries (not included). For ages 10+.

Features:
  • Build your own fully functional Robot Arm
  • Five motors with five axes of movement
  • LED Spotlight on gripper illuminates your work
  • Wired remote controls all arm functions
  • Assembly required (About two hours. No soldering needed.)
  • Lifting capacity of 100g
  • Uses four D Batteries (not included)

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-2-ETS1-2

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit for an investigation to develop a physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function to solve a problem.

K-2-ETS1-3

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit in a variety of configurations to test and compare the strength and weaknesses of how each performs.

3-5-ETS1-2

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit to generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

3-5-ETS1-3

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit to plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

MS-ETS1-2

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit in investigations that evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

MS-ETS1-4

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit in investigations to develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modifications for optimal design.

MS-LS1-3

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit as a model for investigations to support arguments for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems.

HS-ETS1-3

Students can use the Robotic Arm Kit to test and evaluate the power of a lift system in complex real-world problems.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

The Robotic Arm Kit will enhance your students' engineering, math, science, and technology learning strategies. Easy-to-follow instructions with detailed graphic illustrations guide students for a successful and satisfying task. This robot builds science and engineering skills in a dynamic way.
