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 true STEM 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 while 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.

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 Wiggle-Bot or Super Wiggle-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.
