In the Junk Drawer Robotics curriculum, youth are challenged to build robots from everyday items. None of the levels requires or uses computers. There are Facilitator Guides for three levels. Youth use a Robotics Notebook to record their learning experiences, robotic designs and data from their investigations. One facilitator guide is needed per group, while each youth should have their own notebook.
In Level 2 - Robots on the Move, youth learn about locomotion through exploring, designing, and building mobile robot ROVs and other subsystems. Youth learn about friction, electronic circuits, mobile robots, simple machines, and buoyancy. Grades 4-12. (77 pages)
