Build-A-Bot

Design Challenge
Build a Bot
Ocean Exploration Trust

Learners will discuss, research, design, build, and showcase a model ocean exploration device from LEGO bricks or other found materials. Work in teams to research the variety of ocean exploration devices including the tools on E/V Nautilus but don't forget the Build-A-Bot Inspiration Slidedeck for more ideas!  Brainstorm what type of tool learners want to make, what their device will do, and why there is a need for this tool. 

Using LEGO bricks (or alternative craft blocks, Nanoblocks, Duplo, K'Nex, or found materials from the home/classroom) build a unique devices. Learners’ imagination is their only limitation for these models. Display devices in a gallery walk or post images to #InspiredByNautilusLive!
