Robot Plans

  • If this is your first robot, start with one of these plans. You can add your own modifications later.

  • Don't use either of these designs, they don't work for our games and contests:
    • Acrobot in the Constructopedia - no gears, goes too fast
    • Inventorbot in the Constructopedia - wrong shape

Teamwork Tips

  • Sort the parts in your robot kit before starting to build. Place parts of similar size, color, and/or type in the same bin. This makes it MUCH easier to find parts.
  • Give everyone a job. Three jobs are: find parts, build the car, and build the bumper.
  • Rotate jobs so everyone gets a turn to build
  • Work together
