If you fancy making one of your own here's how we did it!
What you will need:
- a 3v motor
- a AAA battery
- electrical tape
- pipe cleaners
What you'll need to do:
First you will need to use the electrical tape to attach the motor to the battery like this. Ensure the negative end of the battery is near the motor like in the photo below.
With another piece of electrical tape stick down the open bit of black wire to the negative end of the battery like this...
Now to test it use another bit of electrical tape and stick the bare bit of red wire to the positive end of the battery and it should vibrate.
Now, with superglue, carefully attach pieces of pipe cleaners so they look like this...
This particular robot doesn't come with a switch so I left the positive end open like this to be stuck down when turning it on and then you have this...
Chiara says she's going to make one of her own and it can be her pet that she'll take out with her. A cute idea with scientific value! We enjoyed making this one, I hope you have fun with yours too!
