Mini-Bots

This is a challenging project, but a great introduction to simple circuits. And how fun is it to make something that actually moves and lights up?! This project is best for children 7 and up, and adult help will be needed but it's worth it!

Ages:
7 - 10
Est. Time:
2+ hours

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. 1 cork
  2. pager vibrator motor (1)
  3. led lights
  4. 3v battery (1)
  5. x-acto knife - for adult use
  6. sand paper (a little square)
  7. scissors
  8. masking tape - or any type of tape
  9. wire to connect the circuit - a 12” stem of uncoated florist wire works great!
  10. googly-eyes, feathers, markers, little bits to decorate
