We started the day with our teacher talking to us about 3D printing and 3D modelling. Then, we started to build our beetle-bots. Beetle-bots are robots that have two motors a battery snap and two micro-switches. The purpose of the bot is for it to avoid hitting objects. It does this when a micro-switch (the antenna of the beetle-bot) hits an object it reverses the polarity of the motor so they can go into reverse and avoid hitting the same object twice.”
