Grade 11 – RTH11 – Bump Bot


Project Description: 

With this exciting take home students will build a rumba style Bump Bot. After their initial lesson, students will get to put their knowledge of circuit diagrams to the test by incrementally wiring their robots using breadboards. We will go over parallel and series circuits, switches and loads, and the symbols that represent them.  Students will investigate the effect of electron flow on the torque generated by the Bump Bot as well as the effect of potential difference on the speed of the robot.


In this lesson the core concepts focused on will be: 

  • Series and Parallel Circuits
  • V, I, R, Calculations


Note: All lessons include a presentation and a hands on building period which they then use to perform various tests.



  • This is a take home project, each student will build and keep their own
  • $300 + $15/student for a class of up to 30 students
  • Price includes all materials, two qualified facilitators and all consumables required
