Junk Drawer Robotics
Start with a “trunk of junk” (clothespins, paper clips, paper, cardboard, scraps of wood and assorted nuts and bolts). Add imagination and elbow grease. Stir. Have fun!
The three levels of Junk Drawer Robotics
- introduce you to robotic arms, hands and grippers
- move on to power transfer and locomotion
- end by connecting mechanical and electronic elements
Some counties have more requirements. Contact your 4-H leader or UI Extension county office to check.
