Solar-Powered Robotics

Through exploration and experimentation, fifth-grade students participated in the creation of solar-powered robots! Students worked collaboratively to design, create, and experiment with their own products during this time.

As an extension, Holly Rice designed her own upcycled robot. Although not solar-powered, the robot was able to function properly with the use of a simple circuit. All materials and creation was researched and designed by Holly for this project!

Additionally, one of the robots was upcycled into the Future City project, completed by Middle School students. Way to go Model!
