Welcome to the May 11th STEMXpress Challenge for PA students. This challenge is designed to give K-12 students a screen-free opportunity to creatively engage in the Design Process.
Think about a job you would like help with. Homework? Cleaning your room? Using the design process, your task is to create a robot from recycled materials.
- Watch the video above or view it here
- What problem would you like your robot to help you with?
- Brainstorm ideas.
- Plan what your robot will look like and gather materials. (Remember, use recycled materials. Don’t go out and buy anything.)
- Create your robot.
- Look for ways to improve your design.
*Middle/High School Challenge: Try to construct your robot from miscellaneous parts from old, unused electronics/ mechanisms…old printer, computer, unused toys, broken bicycle, etc. BE SURE to ask permission before you take anything apart!
