Wiggle-Bots (Super Wiggle) - Doodling, Scribbling, Drawing, Racing Bots - 10 Pack

$125.95
SKU TRG-005

Wiggle-Bots are motorized contraptions that are designed and built entirely by kids.

Wiggle-Bots are more than a fun activity - they truly inspire. Watch eyes widen as wires are connected and Wiggle-Bots start to move. See how understanding and design evolves through experimentation and tinkering. Appreciate the challenge of going beyond step by step instructions and creating something completely new and innovative. It's an incredible experience. How will you wiggle? Your Wiggle-Bot can be designed to do many cool things.

Make it Scribble: Create a marker-holding Wiggle-Bot that draws crazy and fun patterns on a sheet of paper. The patterns will change, based upon your Wiggle-Bot design; make it roll, hop, vibrate, spin, or go crazy. It's up to you!

Race It: Create a Wiggle-Bot that can get somewhere in a hurry. Compete against other Wiggle-Bots, or go for a personal record. Race it straight, or through a wandering course. You've seen vibrating robot bugs in the toy stores. Now you can design and build your own. This can be an elementary, secondary, or university level activity.

Print It: Wiggle-Bots play well with 3-D printers. If you have one, you can download or design components for them. Wiggle-Bots allow you to develop/prototype ideas that can be replaced by or enhanced with 3-D printed parts.

Gear Transmission Using Super-Wiggle-Bot Components:

Component colors will vary. You'll need a few other materials to make your Wiggle-Bot. You should have them laying around.

  • Tape
  • AA Battery
  • 2 to 4 Markers (if you are building a scribble-bot)
  • Recycled Materials (food packaging, cardboard, etc)

Wiggle-Bot components are designed to work with your recycling bin (used food packaging). They allow you to turn recycled materials into working contraptions.
