Designing Robots (Girl Scout Troop)

Robot are simple machines that run automatically, made of many different parts, each with its own important job to help the robot. Sometimes, engineers design robots that look like or are inspired by humans, animals, and nature. Work in engineering teams with your fellow Brownies to design a robot inspired by a bumblebee, and build a robotic arm that helps others to extend their reach. After, it’s time to put it all together, and design your own robot that helps other people or animals! Test and share your robot prototype with other Brownies for ideas on how to make it even better.
