Robox Robot Workshop

RoboxesMake fantastic robots in this ‘Robox’ workshop using two cardboard boxes, a cam shaft and a pile of odds and ends. Robot heads can either spin or go up and down and at the turn of the handle.

Ideal for inventor or robot themed projects and hands-on learning about cams and basic principles of mechanical movement and system control. The photo shows robots made by Borsham School as part of a really imaginative project based on the graphic book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

The workshop can end on a collaborative flourish by linking all the robots together into cluster groups operated by a single handle.

Time slot: a school day.
