The children are having too much fun with Hex bug robots. To begin the lesson, we took the little Hex bug apart. We examined the tiny battery and the motor. The older children at CMP will be making a real robot with a battery pack and a larger motor soon. The fun began with just feeling the Hex bug vibrate on our hands. We learned how the little black switch works and what happens if there is no battery to power the little motor. We needed to use a Phillips screwdriver to open up the battery pack.

Working together to create roadblocks.
We built a perimeter around the picnic table and then a maze.
Now a village!
Funny robot book!
