Bristle Bots Intro to circuits and robotics

Making Bristle Bots is a great way to introduce your students to making and the design process while teaching them beginning robotics and circuitry. Learn how to do it here!

Once you have finished making your Bristlebot, decorate it with various art supplies.

Google eyes, puffballs, and pipe cleaners can bring your bot to life and give it personality.

You will want to use a hot glue gun to attach antennae, eyes and bodies. Teach students to be safe and then let them go to town. Also, watch that decorations don't interfere with the circuit connections.
