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 use biomimicry to design robots that look like or are inspired by humans, animals, and nature. Increasingly, engineers are able to create robots that continue to learn about their environment. Work in teams with your fellow Juniors to explore artificial intelligence (AI), then think about how technology and robotics can help the world. After, it’s time to put it all together and design your own robot! Work like engineers to plan and build a prototype of your robot that solves a global problem. Test and share your robot prototype with other Juniors for ideas on how to make it even better.
