do you need to soter the paper clip to the switch?
No, but you probably need to learn how to spell solder. =) J/k, as long as they touch, the electricity will get through. But when the bot bangs around, it may jostle the connection loose. Solder would prevent that.

instead of connecting the motor with paper clips could you use a photo resistor so that the robot is light seeking
