    Lesson Overview

    In this activity, kids will make a pick and place robot which is an extension to the smartphone-controlled robot with a gripper in front of it. The procedure for making the complete robot requires the following steps:

    • Assembly of the basic robot (Might skip if already made the basic robot earlier)
    • Assembly of the gripper for picking and placing objects
    • Calibrating servo motors and motors for the proper functioning of the robot
    • Understanding the logic of the robot
    • Programming evive to replicate the above logic
    • Testing and debugging of robot

    Note: This lesson may take 2 class to complete. So you have to plan ahead, what to cover in each session. We suggest you do it following way: 

    • Day 1: Assembly of the gripper on the basic robot and calibrating the servo motors and motors.
    • Day 2: Logic, programming, testing and debugging of the robot.
