Introduce your kids to robotics and let them create their own mini robot with the DIY Electric Robot project. This wooden, rope-climbing robot is a multi-disciplinary STEM toy that helps kids to learn about robotics, mechanics, and biodiversity. The robotic toy is a bio-mimicry of the movement of a sloth as it crawls across branches. The toy also educates kids about the principle of converting electrical energy into kinetic energy with batteries and a motor. The robot works on this principle where it converts electric energy from the battery into kinetic energy of the motor. This, in turn, drives the robot to move its two arms alternatively and crawl along the rope. This self-building science toy can be assembled from scratch under the supervision of parents.
STEM education employs the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to encourage children to evolve their problem solving and critical thinking skills. It is a novel approach towards learning that insists on creativity, inquiry, and innovation.
