Terra: Engineering Technology I

Robotics Design

For these assignments you will have to write in your engineering notebook. What you write in your notebook for the assignment is not considered an entry. If you attempt to dress it up as an entry you will receive no credit for your entries!

Day 1: Accounting

For this assignment you will need the Small Parts List and the Big Parts List. You may also want to refer to the Squarebot Assembly Guide for a visual of what each part looks like.

NOTEBOOK: You must write down all of the missing parts in your Engineering Notebook if there are any. You will also design and draw a robot in your engineering notebook. You will need to first draw a Diagram of all of the important parts for your robot and then draw a mechanical drawing of your robot. Your robot should be realistic based on the parts that you have but don't copy off of the instruction manuals! Use your imagination to design a robot that you might be able to build later.

Day 2: Squarebot part 1: Square Base

Refer to the Squarebot Assembly Guide for instructions on how to build the robot. Before you finish you should be at step 5 on page 21. Disassemble the robot at the last 15 minutes of the class unless instructed otherwise. 

Day 3: Squarebot part 2: Completed

Refer to the Squarebot Assembly Guide for instructions on how to build the robot. You should have received the robot from step 5 on page 21. Complete the robot and test it outside the classroom. Disassemble the robot to step 5 on page 21 at the last 15 minutes of the class unless instructed otherwise. 

Day 4: Tumbler part 1: Tumbler Base

Refer to the Tumbler Assembly Guide for instructions on how to build the robot. Before you finish you should be at step 8 on page 37. Disassemble the robot at the last 15 minutes of the class unless instructed otherwise. 

Day 5: Tumbler part 2: Tumbler Completed

Refer to the Tumbler Assembly Guide for instructions on how to build the robot. You should have received the robot from step 8 on page 37. Complete the robot and test it outside the classroom. Disassemble the robot to step 8 on page 37 at the last 15 minutes of the class unless instructed otherwise. 

Day 6: Protobot part 1: Protobot Base

Refer to the Protobot Assembly Guide for instructions on how to build the robot. Before you finish you should be at step 12 on page 7. Disassemble the robot at the last 15 minutes of the class unless instructed otherwise.
