Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Will Need
parts i used :
PVC pipe (pic 2 )
peaces from a meccano set
wrench (size that fit the nuts)
hole making tool or drill
hot glue gun
Step 2: The Feeds
i started by marking where to drill the holes , than i drilled the holes a bit smaller than the bold`s i was using.
for the feeds i used metal meccano parts (pic.3)
if the hole is a bit smaller the bold should tread itself .
Step 3: The Grab Machine Arm
the right arm of the robot was inspired by those impossible grab machines .
to start i bolted 3 L peaces on a long bold (pic.1 and 2)
than i added a pen spring to cover the open space between the 2 nuts (pic.3)
at last i added a last L peace and another nut, i bolted it on the PVC pipe in the same way as i did on the feeds
Step 4: The Rocket Launcher Arm
the left arm is inspired by a rocket launcher .
i found a metal tube peace and glued a rubber washer in the inside.
than i made a hole in the PVC and bolted the rocket launcher on the robot
Step 5: Cook the Egg
put some water in a pan and put the pan on a hot stove.
than trow in the egg ,when the water is boiling you wait about 10 min. before the egg is fully boiled
Step 6: The Eye
you can draw an eye on the egg but i decided to take it 1 step further by making an eye that straps around the egg.
i used some elastic cord to rap around the egg .
for the eye i used a wheel from the meccano set ,
i measured how long the cord should be and Stapled the cord together than i glued the cor on the wheel and there you go you have an eye for an egg .
