Wiggle-Bots are motorized contraptions that are designed and built entirely by kids.

Wiggle-Bots are more than a fun activity - they truly inspire. Watch eyes widen as wires are connected and Wiggle-Bots start to move. See how understanding and design evolves through experimentation and tinkering. Appreciate the challenge of going beyond step by step instructions and creating something completely new and innovative. It's an incredible experience. How will you wiggle? Your Wiggle-Bot can be designed to do many cool things.

This educational product pairs well with the Junk Drawer Robotics Curriculum and is suitable for all ages, however youth 12 and under may require adult supervision.
