Bristlebots: Learning about circuits

Advertisements

The bristlebots are coming!  

In our final project we will construct bristlebots.  Bristlebots are tiny robots made of a motor, battery & a toothbrush.  These tiny robots are a fun way to explore the concept of circuits, motors, and engineering.  Let’s begin by learning some background information about circuits.

First, read about electricity and circuits.

Next, watch these videos. (You might want your earbuds.)

Video #1

Video #2

After you have completed the reading watched both the videos.  Check out some of these circuits games:
