Mechanisms: Robot Building
From the Centre for Science Education, the RA3 project aims to bring parents together with their children and teachers to explore the worlds of science and technology.
These activities use 'mechanical kangaroo' or 'mechanical horse' model robot kits. These kits allow children and parents to explore mechanisms containing levers, cogs, electric motors, batteries, switches and springs.
The models can be used to attempt a series of challenges.
