Robot are simple machines that run automatically, made of many different parts, each with its own important job to help the robot. Sometimes, engineers design robots that look like or are inspired by humans, animals, and nature. Work in engineering teams with your fellow Brownies to design a robot inspired by a bumblebee, and build a robotic arm that helps others to extend their reach. After, it’s time to put it all together, and design your own robot that helps other people or animals! Test and share your robot prototype with other Brownies for ideas on how to make it even better.
1. Explore how robots imitate nature
2. Learn about the parts of a robot
3. Plan your robot
4. Create a prototype
5. Get feedback on your robot
When I’ve earned this badge, I will know how to plan, build, and share feedback like an engineer by creating a prototype of a robot that helps other people or animals.
