Are you ready for a challenge?
"Have you tried bowling with a robot?"
"Built a man sized robot with a parachute, or a huge bubble machine?"
Erik has designed these challenges specifically for inspiring children. Some projects can be replicated at home or in the classroom, others are just to show what amazing things YOU can invent with Strawbees. They all encourage inquisitive young minds to get (ridiculously) excited about engineering.
Challenge 02: Indoor Boomerang Game
Can you invent a fun indoor game with a cardboard boomerang?
Watch the video to find out more how Erik invents a simple boomerang target and then ups his game by coming up with an automated micro:bit robotic target.
Challenge 01: RoboBowling
Watch our first pilot focused around making games!
RoboBowling using just a few Strawbees, building straws and a bit of coding with Quirkbot. Watch the video to see the Eriks building the pins and robot racer and see who of the two Eriks will win the game!
