The Beetle Robot

Sun Sep 10, 10:00 - Sun Sep 10, 13:00
Glass Box - Tshimologong Precinct


The beetle robot (Beetle bot), is a very simple and efficient robot that uses no electronics component to avoid obstacle in its path. There is no silicon chip, that is, no integrated circuit, no transistor, no resistor, capacitor, etc. In other words easy to build, replicate and most importantly lots of fun.


Participants will build their own beetle bot that they can take home.  No skills are needed apart from some common sense. Although the participant will build a robot, they will learn the basics of  electronics and soldering.
