Teacher's Guide

JUNKBOT is an award-winning STEM product and service provider, enabling the young minds to make real life working robots from practically anything. It transforms house hold objects such as plastic bottles and old CDs, wooden spoons or cardboard into unique, imaginative robots that can be programmed for a variety of functions – and at different level of skills.

 

As student delight in making new shapes come alive, they will learn the core STEAM concepts of analytical thinking, problem solving, prototyping, lateral thinking and critical thinking.  They will design, build and program their own robot using everyday for whatever function desired. No previous technical experience is required.

 

Recommended workshop duration is about 10 hours divided in five sessions of 1.5 hour duration.  The scheduling and workshop content can be tailored to fit the needs of your grade and school timetable.  We provide all the required electronics and hardware for the workshops. If students desired to keep the hardware and take home then we can provide our Junkbot robot kit for AED 299.
