Hop into engineering with this jumping bunny ‘bot! Assemble a spring-powered mechanism, then experiment with the design to customize its jumps and give your robot a bunny makeover. Along the way, learn how the physics of potential and kinetic energy work to put the spring in your bunny’s step. Ready to hop to it?
Why it’s awesome
Wire up a motor and build a mechanism to make your ‘bot bounce.
Build and tinker
Customize your bot with a bunny skin or design your own.
Science of jumping
Experiment with angles and energy to explore jumping physics.
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“The inspiration for this crate came from our experiments with different ‘costumes’ for the Jumping Robot using the blank body pieces. We thought the bunny was so cute that it would be fun to turn it into a mini kit and up the goofiness by adding wiggle eyes. They bounce while the bunny hops!”
- KiwiCo Product Designer
