## Introduction: Study Buddy

This instructable explains how to make a studdy buddy

The function of this study buddy is to help teens between the ages of 14 and 18 to learn how to plan and study. The aim is that the robot could learn with the students. The cover is painted in a blackboard paint so the user can write on it.

In these pictures you can find all the supplies and components you will need. This version has the bee cover so it is called a buddy for bizzy beez. I also made a video of this project to make the steps extra clear.

components:

- the cover

- 2 leds, 2 green wires, 2 black wires and 2 resistors

- one base, 4 click pieces and 2 wings

- 4 rotors with wires and 6 long wires

- 4 servos, 4 small screws and 8 big screws

extra materials you need are:

- a pair of scissors

- wire cutters

- a glass

- a pen

- a screwdriver

- tape

## Step 1: Click the Base Together

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the base

- 4 click pieces

what you need to do:

1) click the pieces in the base in the provided holes

## Step 2: Screw the Servos in the Holes

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assembly from the previous step

- 4 servos

- 8 big screws

- screwdriver

what you need to do:

1) place the servo in the hole

2) make sure the white axis is oriented to the side of the base

3) screw 2 of the screws in the appropiate holes on either side of the servo

4) repeat 4 times

## Step 3: Make the Insects Legs

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assembly from the previous step

- 6 long wires

- wire cutters

what you need to do:

1) locate paired 12 holes in the base

2) loop the wire through the first hole from the bottom to the top ( the top side is the side with the servos clicked to)

make sure you leave a part of the wire hanging, the chosen length will be the length of the legs

3) loop the wire again through the same hole this results in making a loop

close the loop by pressing it down with the wire cutters

4) pull the wire through the second hole from the top to the bottom

5) loop the wire again through the same hole this results in making a loop

close the loop by pressing it down with the wire cutters

6) twist the 2 ends at the bottom together

7) repeat 6 times

8) cut all the legs off at the same length

## Step 4: Put on the Rotors

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assembly from the previous step

- the wires with rotors

- 4 small screws

- screwdriver

what you need to do:

1) attach the rotors on the axis of the servo

2) orientate the rotor to the outside of the base

3) put the screw in the centre axis and screw thight

4) repeat 4 times

## Step 5: Attach the Leds

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the cover

- 2 leds

- 2 black wires

- 2 green wires

- 2 resistors

what you need to do:

1) put the led on the outside of the wing hole

2) pull the black and green wires through the wing hole

3) attach the black wire to the short side of the led

4) attach the green wire to the long side of the led

5) tape the wires and les together

6) attach the resistor on the other end of the black wire

7) repeat also on the other side

## Step 6: Pull the Wires Through the Covers

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assemblys from the previous step

what you need to do:

1) take the wires attached to the rotors

2) pull these wires through the holes in the cover

## Step 7: Weave the Wire and Wings Together

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assemblys from the previous step

- the wings

- the wire cutters

what you need to do:

1) take the wire sticking through the wing hole, cut this wire off using the wire cutters

2) take one wing

3) attach these two wires using the wire cutters make a weaving motion

## Step 8: Insects Antenna

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assemblys from the previous step

- pen

- glass

what you need to do:

1) use the glass and pen to make the intects antennas

2) repeat on the other side

## Step 9: Click the Cover in Place

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assemblys from the previous step

what you need to do:

1) place the base in the cover

2) apply pressure until secure

## Step 10: Attach the Hardware to the Core

To complete this step you will need the following parts:

- the assemblys from the previous step

- the core

what you need to do:

1) attach the wires of the servos to the core

2) attach the wires of the leds to the core

3) you are done
