TEK Tuesdays: Wobble Bot Leave a Comment / TEK Tuesdays / By email@example.com How to build a wobbling robot using minimal parts!

STEP 2: Strip the plastic casing off the ends of both wires to 15mm. STEP 3: Twist the exposed wires to create solid ends. (Do not twist red & black wires together) STEP 4: Insert the exposed wire end through the motor pin and fold toward the encased wire. STEP 5: Twist the motor 2-3 times until the wire is secured onto the pin. STEP 6: Repeat the process, securing the opposite wire onto the opposite pin. STEP 7: Cut the coroplast into the desired shape for the body of your Wobble Bot. (Making sure to leave room for all 4 legs.) STEP 8: Glue four corks onto each corner of the body. STEP 9: Flip the robot over and glue the battery pack lid onto the center of the top. STEP 10: Push the remaining cork onto the motor axle slightly off-center to create the wobble. STEP 11: Glue the motor onto the back end of the body. (Allowing space for the cork to spin freely.) STEP 12: Glue the eyes and nose onto the front of the body. STEP 13: Add any additional decorative elements. STEP 14: After making sure the battery pack is OFF, insert the batteries. STEP 15: Secure the battery pack onto the lid and test out your Wobble Bot!
