Build a T-Bott II robotic arm that illustrates hydraulic power and mechanics.
See how syringes, tubes and water work together to power the parts of this robotic arm. Each control moves one of the T-Bott II's axes. The four controls can be used one at a time or all at once by a team of students. Have students try basic maneuvers or moving objects as a team-building exercise. Construction requires a screwdriver, scissors, a cool-melt glue gun, and white and cool-melt glue (not included).
