Robot Buggy Part 1 An Introduction

This fun learning resource has been put together to provide teachers with an all in one design and technology challenge that you can set for your students over the course of a term or a year. The resource includes a number of different design and technology aspects; electronics, mechanical assembly, 2D and 3D design, using a laser cutter, using a 3D printer and coding and testing. If your school doesn’t have access to a laser cutter or 3D printer there are alternative methods highlighted in the individual resources.

We also intend to produce a series of games and challenges that can be played with the buggies once they are complete. The games will be explained in full and will also include full sets of rules and also a scoring guide. These games will offer a fun way for the students to test their designs in a competitive way.
