So Many Pieces! Assembling a Robot Arm

When I opened the box of our new Robot Arm Kit and saw the number of pieces, I wondered how on earth I was going to put it together! Once upon a time, I would cringe at having to get a screwdriver to open a battery compartment!  I’m proud to say that, not only did I manage to put the Robot Arm together, it actually worked too!

To my surprise, I found the assembly process enjoyable, relaxing and very rewarding.  The most challenging aspect for me was identifying the variety of screws, nuts and bolts, as many were quite similar.  The kit also came with a controller that also required some assembly.  We also purchased a USB Interface Kit, allowing us to connect the Robot Arm to a computer and program it via the supplied Robot Arm software.

Curriculum resources are also available for this technology such as Robotic Arm Edge Activities & Curriculum.
