Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Make the Legs

Firstly, you need to make two legs for your robot. To make these legs, find a water-pipe, cut a ring-shaped from that tube. Then, use scissors to cut the rings into two parts.

Now, using glue gun to draw some lines on the surfaces of the legs. Thank to that, your robot can run on almost surfaces or terrances.
Be careful because you can get hurt from glue gun.

Step 2: Stick Leg to the Motor

I use gear-motor in this project. You can buy one easily on ebay or amazon. Now cut few small pieces of plastic then stick them to motor arm. After that, stick the legs to those plastic parts. You finish robot's legs

Step 3: Make Front Wheel

Front wheel is very important because it keeps robot balance. I use two bottle tops to make the wheel by sticking them together. Make a hole on the both sides of the tops with an aluminum stick. Now you have a front wheel. Make sure your wheel move smoothly otherwise your robot will flip up-side-down.

Step 4: Finish Hopper-flopper Robot

Stick battery to robot's body and switch on. Your robot is ready to run.
