Everyone loves to wiggle! Engineer a motorized contraption powered by your imagination. You can engineer and design anything you want: a scribble-bot, a racing-bot, a dancing-bot, even a paddle-bot. The possibilities are endless!

This is a real engineering project (not a toy). What does that mean? You get to design and build your own unique Super Wiggle-Bot, rather than just following directions. Start in the Electricity Lab and connect TeacherGeek components to learn about the flow of electrons and using a battery to power an electric motor. Then, start building a Scribble-Bot in the Build Guide to use in the Wave Lab. Learn about frequency and wavelength with the scribbles your Wiggle-Bot makes.

If you would like to do this activity "Just for Fun", download the "Out of the Classroom Version" to get building quick (an all-in-one document, without the labs). But no matter how you start this activity, both versions will help you design and build your own Wiggle-Bot to compete in Wiggle-Bot Engineering Challenges.

Make It Your Own: The documents for this activity are available in PDF and Microsoft Word format. If you wish to edit a document, simply download the Microsoft Word format.

What do you need to know about an engineering challenge? First… you are never done. Every design can be improved, so students should be working on improving their racing Wiggle-Bot (Racing-Bot) until the very last available second. 

Design, build, test and evolve different Racing-Bot configurations during these engineering challenges. Use the Engineering Notebook to improve your design.

TeacherGeek Wiggle-Bot Build Guide and Lab PDF

Download the Build Guide and Labs

Students will start by using some Wiggle-Bot components before they build to investigate electricity, circuitry, atoms and what they’re made of in the Electricity Lab. Then, move on to the Build Guide to construct a unique Wiggle-Bot. Finish, by converting your Wiggle-Bot into a Scribble-Bot for the Wave Lab. Learn about wavelengths, frequency, amplitude, and how differences in your Scribble-bot effects the way it moves.
